Civil liability certificate (CLC 69)

Issued under provision of

International Convention on Civil Liability for Oil Pollution Damage (CLC)

It is an evidence issued by flag state that the vessel is P&I insured to cover damage from pollution by oil

Requirements for wreck removal certificate are:

  • copy of the registry certificate
  • Copy of the P&I policy

The 1992 Protocol allows for States Party to the 1992 Protocol to issue certificates to ships registered in States which are not Party to the 1992 Protocol, so that a shipowner can obtain certificates to both the 1969 and 1992 CLC, even when the ship is registered in a country which has not yet ratified the 1992 Protocol. This is important because a ship which has only a 1969 CLC may find it difficult to trade to a country which has ratified the 1992 Protocol, since it establishes higher limits of liability.
