Removal of Wrecks and Derelicts in Nigerian Waters

In order to achieve effective implementation and enforcement of provisions of Nairobi Wreck Removal Convention, the Agency divided the Wreck Removal Programme into three stages, namely:

  • Pre-wreck Removal;
  • Wreck Removal and
  • Post-Wreck Removal operations.

As required by the convention, the Agency enforces compulsory insurance or financial security to cover liability for wreck removal on ships of 300GT and above, and issues Civil Liability Certificates on Wreck Removal
