Viðaukar og kóðar við alþjóðasamninga á sviði siglinga, sem Ísland er aðili að, skulu birtir á vef Samgöngustofu, enda hafi meginefni viðkomandi alþjóðasamninga verið birt í C-deild Stjórnartíðinda. Einnig skal birta á vef Samgöngustofu dreifibréf og leiðbeiningarreglur sem Alþjóðasiglingamálastofnunin eða önnur alþjóðastofnun gefur út til nánari skýringar á framkvæmd viðkomandi alþjóðasamninga. Heimilt er að birta eingöngu erlendan frumtexta af viðaukum, kóðum, dreifibréfum og leiðbeiningarreglum.

12 The Torremolinos Protocol is effectively replaced and superseded by the 2012 Cape Town Agreement which updates and amends a number of provisions of the Protocol, to facilitate their entry into force. States should therefore not ratify or otherwise express their consent to be bound by the Protocol and should instead become Parties to the Agreement; States which have already expressed their consent to be bound by the Protocol should take appropriate steps to signify their consent to be bound by the Agreement using one of the options available under article 3 of the Agreement.

13) In order to eliminate certain obstacles to the ratification of the 1996 HNS Convention, a number of provisions of the Convention have been amended by the 2010 HNS Protocol. The Convention, as amended by its Protocol will, once the Protocol enters into force, constitute the 2010 HNS Convention. In order to avoid a situation in which two conflicting regimes would become operational, States that decide to become Parties to the 2010 HNS Protocol must ensure that they deposit instruments only in respect of the Protocol, without any references to the 1996 HNS Convention (see resolution 3 of the International Conference of 2010 on the Revision of the HNS Convention).
