Legislative Regulation for Hoisting Ownerless Objects Sunk within Seaports

* Corresponding author: firstname.lastname@example.org
Creating a legislative algorithm needed to regulate hoisting of sunken ownerless property is an illustration of existing gaps in national legislation. Legal relations regulated for objects sunk within seaports is touched upon in the Federal Law On Seaports and in the Merchant Shipping Code, but vague wording, lack of an exact algorithm in federal legislation and by-laws creates conditions allowing seaport authorities to stand still and ‘shift’ responsibility on someone else for resolving an issue of ownerless property. The author proposes a clear regulatory algorithm for recognizing objects sunk within seaports as ownerless, holding responsible for hoisting the said objects and mitigating environmental hazards on economic entities operating in seaports.
