CODE OF CONDUCT FOR THE MERCHANT NAVY
|D O W N L O A D|
The content of the present Code of Conduct was developed by the several internationally recognized entities equally respected in the world of the maritime shipping, and was approved by the MCA, standing for the Maritime and Coastguard Agency. Make sure you get yourself fully familiarized with the document. The Code is intended to set out the most important disciplinary rules as well as the established procedures applying when employing to work on the vessel.
The seafaring is commonly referred to as the occupation imposing certain requirements on the mariners, ones you would hardly find on any land-based works. For example, the seafarers normally spend their time in the enclosed environment, sharing this confined space with the others, and this makes them a bit more vulnerable to all stresses that the everyday life causes to the people working ashore.
Well, and this is where and when the good behavior and due discipline become of particular importance, directly affecting the living and working atmosphere. The main idea of the authors of the present Code was to set out the rules that would clearly reflect the behavioral standards; the compliance with the subject standards is expected from all people on board ship.
