After the second edition of this book was published in 1994, the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act was amended to give the Hague-Visby Rules the “force of law”. This brought the Singapore position on the effect of these Rules in line with UK law. Furthermore, the effect of the provisions of the Bills of Lading Act (“BLA”), and the corresponding UK statute, namely, the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act 1992, has been explained in many cases in Singapore and the UK. Since the last edition, other aspects of the law on carriage of goods by sea have also been clarified and there have been many important judicial pronouncements on the effect of the Hague Rules and the Hague-Visby Rules.
