ISF Guidelines on the Application of the ILO Maritime Labour Convention, 2nd Ed. (2012)
The ILO Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) will enter into force in August 2013 and employers will need to be ready.
To help shipping companies and crews ensure compliance, ISF has updated and expanded its comprehensive guide, originally published shortly after the MLC was adopted.*
The new ISF Guidelines address in detail the obligations of ship operators including inter alia:
• Seafarers’ employment contracts
• Oversight of manning agents
• Working hours
• Health and safety
• Crew accommodation
• Catering standards
The ISF Guide also contains:
• Guidance on MLC certification (including the Declaration of Maritime Labour Compliance)
• Port state control
• On board complaint procedures
• Compliance checklist
Plus - accompanying CD containing full text of the Guide (with a ‘search’ function), the full text of the MLC itself, plus other useful documentation.
