BSAA is pleased to advise  that a one-day training will be organized on Friday, 2nd August 2013

on the topic " Conventions and Thai Laws on International Carriage of Goods by Sea".

International carriage of goods by sea has long been a  principal mode of transportation serving the global trade.  Over several decades, Hauge Rules 1924, Haugue-Visby Rules 1968 and Hamburg Rules 1978 are the governing conventions on which Thai COGSA B.E. 2534 and Multimodal Transport Act B.E. 2548 are also based.  UNCITRAL spent several years in working on a new convention to unify the three conventions.  The draft "Convention on the Carriage of Goods Wholly or Partly by Sea" was adopted in 2008 which is now known as the "Rotterdam Rules".  It is expected that the Rotterdam Rules will eventually be adopted internationally replacing the three old conventions. 


We are privileged to have two of the most knowledgeable academics in martime laws,

Professor Dr. Pathaichit Eagjariyakorn and Arjarn Somporn Paisin as our speakers.

Interesting outlines of the training include:


- Historical background of Hague Rules, Hague-Visby Rules, Hamburg Rules and

  Rotterdam Rules;

- Historical background of Thai COGSA 2534 and MT Act 2548;

- Analysis of important provisions in the Thai laws versus the three conventions;

- Analysis of the amended and new provisions in the Rotterdam Rules;

- Thailand's future decision on the Rotterdam Rules and the impact on   

  amendment of existing Thai laws;

- Analysis of important IP&IT Supreme Court Rulings.


The training will give an in-depth knowledge of the old conventions and the new convention as well as the Thai laws which will be beneficial to our business operation.


The training is highly recommended for supervisory and managerial staff.
