Chapter 18 Final Clauses

Rotterdam Rules: A Practical Annotation

18 Final Clauses Article 87. Depositary The Secretary-General of the United Nations is hereby designated as the depositary of this Convention. NOTES [87-01] Like many of the articles in the final clauses of this Convention, Article 87 owes far more to the 1978 United Nations Convention on the Carriage of Goods by Sea 1 (the treaty embodying the Hamburg Rules, hereinafter the Hamburg Rules Convention)—in this case Article 27, which it reproduces verbatim —than to either the 1924 International Convention for the Unification of Certain Rules relating to Bills of Lading 2 (the treaty embodying the Hague Rules, hereinafter the Hague Rules Convention), whose depositary is Belgium, 3 or to its 1968 Protocol embodying the Hague-Visby Rules 4 (hereinafter the Hague-Visby Rules Protocol).
