The ILO adopted the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 (MLC, 2006), in February 2006. The Convention was expected to come into force in 2011 or early 2012.
The MLC 2006 applies to all ships engaged in commercial activities, whether privately or publicly owned. However, it does not apply to ships that navigate inland waters where port regulations apply, or ships engaged in fishing or similar. Also the certification of MLC 2006 applies to ships of:
(1) 500 GRT or over, engaged in international voyages, and
(2) 500 GRT or over, flying the flag of a member state and operating in another country from a port, or between ports.
For your proper preparation for the implementation of MLC 2006:
- We review your operations, procedures, processes and all the employment agreements used for your crew members.
- On board your vessel, we undertake a full review against the MLC, 2006 requirements, including an inspection of the accommodations.
- Once the flag administration has issued the DMLC Part I detailing its national requirements, your company must produce a document, DMLC Part II, which must detail what measures you will adopt to ensure ongoing compliance with the legislation. We can prepare DMLC Part II manual and assess compliance with the flag legislation.
Our work addresses the inspection criteria taking into account the five titles of the Convention:
- Title 1: Minimum requirements for seafarers to work on a ship.
- Title 2: Conditions of employment.
- Title 3: Accommodation, recreational facilities, food and catering.
- Title 4: Health protection, medical care, welfare and social security protection.
- Title 5: Compliance and enforcement - on board complaint procedures.
