Abstract The article analyses an institute of deviation in the system of rules on liability of sea carrier. Author defines a selection of the criteria for reasonable deviation as a key issue. Recognition of such deviation presupposes a possibility to be released from liability for loss, damage to cargo or delay in its delivery. Author draws attention to comparative analysis of norms of international law, national law of the countries of Anglo-American legal system and The Russian Merchant Shipping Code. The article deals with such kinds of deviation as unauthorized carriage on deck, the overcarriage of the goods, geographical deviation etc. The research paper is also based on analysis of a number of judgments, related to the deviation and quasi-deviation.
