Data entry notes: 
[ED Note: This Convention will enter into force via its 2010 HNS Protocol https://iea.uoregon.edu/treaty/4611 "By 2009, the 1996 HNS convention had still not entered into force, due to an insufficient number of ratifications. A second international conference, held in April 2010, adopted a Protocol to the HNS convention (2010 HNS Protocol) that was designed to address practical problems that had prevented many States from ratifying the original Convention. States are being urged to ratify the 2010 Protocol. Together with the IOPC Funds and ITOPF, IMO has produced a six-page brochure that explains to States the purpose and benefit of the HNS Convention and encourages IMO Member States to take the next steps to ratify or accede to the Convention. Once the 2010 HNS Protocol enters into force, the 1996 Convention, as amended by the 2010 Protocol, will be called “the International Convention on Liability and Compensation for Damage in Connection with the Carriage of Hazardous and Noxious Substances by Sea, 2010.
