THE MARITIME LABOUR CONVENTION 2006

In the last sixty years there have been enormous changes in the maritime industry, all merchant ships that ever sailed the oceans feeding the market of the growing global economy. However, the rights of the seafarers have failed to keep up with this changing industry coming entangled with the mess of complex legislation and rules until now.

The 26 February 2006 is a very important date for the international legislation - this is the date when the MLC, standing for the Maritime Labour Convention, was put in place by the International Labour Organization.

Subject convention was largely initiated by the maritime industry itself. The convention is supported by the industry and governments, and is being ratified by the increasing number of countries. The MLC replaces the often confusing tangle of forty conventions and twenty-nine recommendations that had accumulated over time with the clear, simple and practical framework.

Everyone working in and associated with the maritime industry, from the ratings to the government ministers will benefit from it. This will effectively change the way we operate in this dynamic industry. Watch this video and get familiarized with the basics of the convention.

INTERNATIONAL MARITIME LAW INSTITUTE PROMOTIONAL VIDEO

Shipping today is perhaps one of the industries considered most international - today's shipping is serving from ninety to ninety-five percent of the whole global trade; the expands of the globe seas is also taking place through the instrumentality of ships, a means of convergence between contents and countries.

Because of the international nature of the shipping industry, it have long been acknowledged that the actions taken to improve safety in the maritime operations would actually be twice as effective if they were carried out at international level rather than done by the individual countries acting unilaterally and in most cases with little to no coordination with each other.

And this has eventually resulted in the situation where several countries have made a proposal to establish a new permanent international regulatory body that would be dealing with the promotion of the maritime safety in a more effective manner...
