Description: In this special edition of Standard Safety we outline the requirements of the Maritime Labour Convention 2006. The convention has been described as the ‘fourth pillar’ of international maritime regulatory conventions, complementing: The International Convention for the S • afety of Life at Sea (SOLAS)
• The International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) and
• The International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, 1973 as modified by the Protocol of 1978 (MARPOL)
The Maritime Labour Convention has incorporated 67 previous International Labour Organisation (ILO) legal instruments relating to seafarers’ accommodation, rest hours, medical care and repatriation.
Shipowners should be aware of the convention requirements and prepare for its introduction. Most well-operated companies may already comply with the requirements or at least most of them. However, after ratification, failures to comply could result in fines or detentions.
