Exploring the Nairobi International Convention on the Removal of Wrecks, 2007 (ICRW)
The Nairobi International Convention on the Removal of Wrecks, 2007 is an important international treaty that sets standards for the removal of shipwrecks and the protection of the marine environment. It entered into force on 14 April 2015.
The Nairobi International Convention on the Removal of Wrecks establishes legal obligations and procedures for the prompt and effective removal of shipwrecks that may pose a threat to the safety of navigation or the marine environment. It also includes a compulsory insurance regime requiring vessels of 300 gross tonnage or more to carry a Wreck Removal Certificate (NWRC) issued by a State Party to the Convention.
