Appointment Provisions

Marine Liability Act

The GIC shall appoint an Administrator of the Fund to hold office during good behaviour for a term, not exceeding five years, as is fixed by the GIC, subject to removal by the GIC for cause. The GIC may appoint a Deputy Administrator of the Fund to hold office during good behaviour for a term, not exceeding five years, as is fixed by the GIC, subject to removal by the GIC for cause. They are eligible for reappointment.

In the event that the Administrator is absent or incapacitated or if the office of Administrator is vacant, the Deputy Administrator has all the powers and duties of the Administrator.

The Administrator shall not, while holding office, accept or hold any office or employment inconsistent with the Administrator’s duties. If the Administrator contravenes this provision, the Administrator’s appointment as Administrator is terminated on a date fixed by the GIC that is not later than thirty days after notice of the contravention is received by the Minister; but the contravention does not affect the validity of any act performed by the Administrator on behalf of the Ship-Source Oil Pollution Fund between the date of the contravention and the date that his appointment is terminated. The above applies to the Deputy Administrator, with any modifications that the circumstances require.
