Data entry notes: 
There are two IOPC Funds: the 1971 Fund and the 1992 Fund which have different maximum amounts of compensation and different Member States. Membership in the 1992 Fund is increasing. The 1971 Fund lost importance as States left to join the 1992 Fund. Due to denunciations, the 1971 Fund Convention ceased to be in force on 24 May 2002,

IMO website at: http://www.imo.org/conventions/contents.asp?doc_id=660&topic_id=256 -- From 16 May 1998, Parties to the 1992 Protocol ceased to be Parties to the 1969 CLC due to a mechanism for compulsory denunciation of the "old" regime established in the 1992 Protocol. However, for the time being, the two regimes are co-existing, since there are a number of States which are Party to the 1969 CLC and have not yet ratified the 1992 regime - which is intended to eventually replace the 1969 CLC.
