Which types of environmental damage are covered by international liability regimes and not the directive?

Maritime oil disasters and nuclear accidents. Preference was given to international environmental liability arrangements for two reasons: either their scope is greater as they apply on a worldwide basis and legally bind more countries than only EU member states (this is the case with conventions covering oil pollution), or their regime provides for additional guarantees, for example by operating with compensation funds.
