Since implemented on July 1, 1993, the Maritime Code of the People's Republic of China has played an irreplaceable role in adjusting the legal relationship in maritime commerce. In recent years, great changes have taken place in the practice of international shipping. To further meet the practical needs of international shipping and judicial practice, the revision of the Maritime Code of the People's Republic of China (for short is CMC) has been put on the agenda officially. The obligation of disclosure occupies an important position in the entire marine insurance legal system, and has continuously changed and evolved over hundreds of years. As the birthplace of marine insurance law, the United Kingdom passed a new insurance law in 2015, named as Insurance Act (IA2015), abolishing the unlimited notification mode for the insured existed for more than 100 years, and introducing a fair presentation obligation and related relief mechanism, which can be described as a revolutionary measure. At present, China's marine insurance is booming, and marine insurance activities need to be guided by accurate, mature and complete legal provisions. Research on the reform of the disclosure obligation model combined with the development of the British insurance law, clarifying its connotation and specific content is helpful to promote relevant adaptation in China, and has important theoretical significance and practical value for revising relevant sections of CMC.
