Additional Provisions Relating to Particular Stages of Carriage
Article 24. Deviation
When pursuant to applicable law a deviation constitutes a breach of the carrier’s obligations, such deviation of itself shall not deprive the carrier or a maritime performing party of any defence or limitation of this Convention, except to the extent provided in article 61.
Under the Rotterdam Rules, whether or not deviation constitutes a breach of the contract of carriage is left for the national applicable law to decide. 1 However, irrespective of the answer, the consequence will not be that of depriving the carrier of the protections afforded to it by the Convention.
