This monograph covers transportation law in Greece. It is part of a unique series of looseleaf publications by Kluwer, currently comprising of 25 distinct reference works in various areas of law / subjects (one of which is Transport Law). Each of the subsets is itself encyclopaedic in nature, covering a major field of law with penetrating country-by-country monographs that describe how each national legal system governs the relevant field. These national monographs are supplemented where relevant with international monographs which detail the workings of supranational organisations that affect the field of law in question, or offer an overview of the field from a comparative perspective. The International Encyclopaedia for Transport Law contains national monographs in this subset of the International Encyclopaedia of Laws. For each jurisdiction transport law in its broadest sense is examined. IN relation to Greece, jurisdiction, state immunity, and the main sources of transport law is set out. With reference to maritime law, the reader will find information on the legal status of the vessel, its acquisition, ownership and registration. Other topics discussed are maritime liens and mortgages, the position of master and crew, liability and limitation of liability (L.L.M.C. Convention 1976), charter parties and Transport under Bill of Lading (Hague-Visby Rules), transport by air (Warsaw Convention and related conventions), transport by rail (C.O.T.I.F. Convention) and inland navigation, multimodal transport, marine pollution.
