The United Nation Convention for the International Carriage of Goods Wholly
or Partly by Sea (Rotterdam Rules) was signed in Rotterdam in September 2009. The
aim of this Convention is to unify international law on the carriage of goods. The
Rotterdam Rules follow after the Hague Rules and the Hamburg Rules. It is beyond
doubt that the Rotterdam Rules take into account modern transactions and the needs
of subjects participating in the carriage of goods by sea (e.g. electronic transport
records, responsibility of the performing party, right of control, compulsory of the
provisions on the liability of both parties etc.). Those rules have occasionally mutatis
mutandis shrewdly and compromisingly included the Hague-Visby and Hamburg
Rules. The Rules partially regulate multimodal (door to door) transport, too. However,
experience calls for caution. New solutions have been known to be obstacles
to unification, in particular to the attempt to partly regulate multimodal transport.
Apart from that, the Rotterdam Rules are burdened by a large number of regulations.
If the ratifications of EU member states begin (I doubt that this will occur soon), it
would not hinder the Republic of Croatia from accepting the Rotterdam Rules and
incorporating them into their own Maritime Code.
