But the wide use of certain forms also means that a judicial decision which disturbs an accepted construction of a document may retrospectively affect many transactions entered into on the basis of that previously accepted meaning. This may influence the willingness of the courts to reverse a settled interpretation. But so too does the knowledge that shipping circles show no reluctance to make amendments to standard forms in order to avoid anything seen as an unsatisfactory precedent.

This desire has been satisfied in a few areas of the law of carriage of goods, although not always by the same means: inter-governmental agreements resulted in the Hague and the Hague-Visby Rules (see Chapter 10); international agreement amongst interest groups produced the York-Antwerp Rules (Chapter 17).
