    This Order extends to Tuvalu the provisions of the Merchant Shipping (Oil Pollution) Act 1971, with the necessary adaptations, enabling effect to be given to the International Convention on Civil Liability for Oil Pollution Damage opened for signature in Brussels on 29th November 1969 (Cmnd. 4403).

The 1971 Convention sets up an international fund to provide a supplementary system for compensation and indemnification for such damage.
