Abstract:     
Ship suppliers’ claims have traditionally not enjoyed maritime lien status in Common Law jurisdictions outside the United States. Instead, ship suppliers have been treated as unsecured creditors with a mere right of action in rem against the relevant vessel. However, Canada has recently introduced a statutory maritime lien for certain ship suppliers’ claims. This article provides a comparative analysis of the historical development of ship suppliers’ claims in maritime law, evaluates the Canadian reform, and discusses its potential implications for the Asia-Pacific region.
