The International Group IG position on amendments to 1996 HNSC • IG supported implementation of a workable ‘96 Convention, but recognised the difficulties that States faced and stood ready to assist in any way possible • IG recognised: - necessity to keep the Convention international and to fend off any regional proposals, - need to preserve the reputation of the IMO and - need to produce solution most widely accepted.
