Art. 3
    Art. 3. When anchored automatic contact mines are employed, every possible precaution must be taken for the security of peaceful shipping.
    The belligerents undertake to do their utmost to render these mines harmless within a limited time, and, should they cease to be under surveillance, to notify the danger zones as soon as military exigencies permit, by a notice addressed to ship owners, which must also be communicated to the Governments through the diplomatic channel.
