 ​Myanmar has deposited its instrument of accession to the 1992 Protocol to the International Convention on Civil Liability for Oil Pollution Damage (CLC). 

 
The efforts to bring the legislation into national law followed the participation of Myanmar at a five-day workshop hosted by International Maritime Organization (IMO) in November 2015, during which Government officials from Myanmar gained insight into IMO treaties on liability and compensation and the benefits, rights and obligations of Parties to these conventions.
 
Kyaw Htin Lin, Counsellor, of the Embassy of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar in the United Kingdom accompanied by Ms. Wai Wai Lin, 1st Secretary and Ms. Zin May Hnin, 2nd Secretary deposited the instrument with MR. Frederick Kenney, Director, Legal Affairs and External Relations Division, acting on behalf of the IMO Secretary-General.
