Understanding and Confirmation of ”Sea Relative Water” and "Port Operation Disputes"

 

【Summary】

Understanding ”Sea Relative Water” and "Port Operation Disputes" should proceed from the maritime legal system and shipping practices, and should not not unilaterally identify the literal meaning from the perspective of geography. ”Sea Relative Water” should be understood as waters which are connected to the sea and can be navigated by ships. "Port Operation Disputes" under the exclusive jurisdiction of maritime court refer specifically to those occurring in coastal ports, with the scope limited to disputes over property damage.
