The first chapter of this dissertation examines four kinds of various expenses or charges incurring for preventing a loss by perils insured under the 1906 Marine Insurance Act: they are general average, salvage charges, particular charges and suing and labouring expenses in order to find out the real statutory position and application of salvage on the 1906 Marine Insurance Act. The second chapter continually examines the practical application of salvage on marine insurance policies/clauses. The policies or clauses discussed include the Foreign General Average Clauses, the York-Antwerp Rules 1974/1990/1994, Rule Cl of the Rules of Practice of Association of Average Adjusters; Institute Time Clauses for Hull, Institute Cargo Clauses and P&I Insurance. The third chapter discusses the changes of substantive law of salvage in the 1989 Salvage Convention which may affect the marine insurance. The selected issues include the new special compensation scheme, the duties clauses, the 1981 Montreal Compromise, the 1980 and 1990 Funding Agreement, the 1994 Pollution Compromise and the Nagasaki Spirit case. The fourth chapter discusses separately the impacts of each major substantive change of the 1989 Salvage Convention on the 1906 Marine Insurance Act and the practical policies and clauses and further discovers the problems which may reveal unsettled. This dissertation provides lots of suggestions for various disclosed issues and problems existing and concealing in the 1989 Salvage Convention and marine insurance.
