Maritime Labour Convention 2006 (MLC 2006) to come into force from 20th August

 

The International Labour Organization's Maritime Labour Convention, known as "MLC, 2006", comes into force on 20 August 2013. Effectively becoming binding as international law, it will establish minimum working and living standards for all seafarers. It will also be an essential step toward ensuring fair competition and a level-playing field for quality owners of ships flying the flags of ratifying countries.

The MLC, 2006 was adopted by government, employer and worker representatives at a special ILO International Labour Conference in February 2006 to provide international standards for the world's first genuinely global industry. Widely known as the "seafarers' bill of rights", it is unique in its effect on both seafarers and quality ship owners.
