The institute has reported the expedition leader for violation of the Regulations pertaining to the protection of the Environment in Antarctica for the lack of advance notice of activities, the lack of an initial environmental evaluation and the lack of insurance cover for rescue expenses. Reporting these violations is independent of the tragic disappearance of the yacht Berserk in the Ross Sea.
