Abstract

This article provides a comparative analysis of provision 4.2.c of the Hague and Hague-Visby Rules exempting the international ocean carrier of goods from liability for ‘perils of the sea’ following English, French and Greek law. The author analyses the conditions of application and the main characteristics of the liability defence under the laws, case law and doctrine of the three countries in order to determine whether uniformity in the qualification of the exemption exists or is possible.

Keywords: Sea Perils, Visby, English, French, Greek
