Session 1: Salvage And Wreck Removal

Any casualty and particularly one involving salvage and/or wreck removal necessarily has a number of stakeholders involved, each with their own needs, wants and drivers which must be balanced. During this session a panel representing many of the main stakeholders and participants in a major casualty will discuss how this balance can be achieved considering the myriad of different requirements, both legal and practical, that need to be satisfied.
