Abstract: In the last two decades, China has emerged as one of the major maritime nations. The rate of expansions of China's fleet has increased much higher than the world average. But what is less well known are the changes taking place to the infrastructure of China, particularly its legal infrastructure. The first milestone deserved to be recognized is the establishment of the current maritime court structure. China has ratified most of the important maritime conventions. Together, China's enacted laws and convention obligations constitute a comprehensive maritime legal system that is in line with the practice of maritime nations generally. As we look to the future, the next milestone is likely to be the updating of China Maritime Code and perhaps greater interest, the possibility of forming a specialist maritime appeal court instead of playing the role of an appeal court by the Supreme Court. Through critically analyzing the current legal enforcement regime, this paper examines the differences in the UK, Hong Kong and the PRC to identify the existing problems. This paper also contains a comparative analysis of the implementation in the law of different countries of the provisions of the Convention and reports on the relevant case in these countries. Therefore, it will be the aim of this work to provide good case studies not only of limitation and ship arrest but also all the other related regimes.
