The Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 (MLC) has been ratified by the UK just ahead of the convention entering force on the 20th August, 2013.

This new International Labour Organization (ILO) convention consolidates and updates more than 68 international labour standards in the maritime sector. It sets minimum global standards for seafarers living and working conditions. It also reflects the valuable contribution of the ILO to global employment standards

The UK’s adoption has been extended to include the Isle of Man and Gibraltar.

Stephen Hammond MP, UK Minister for Shipping, said:

“I am pleased to adopt this convention. This will ensure that there are globally agreed standards for seafarers and their right to decent working conditions. It will also provide clarity of regulatory approach and remove obstacles to regional trade.

“It also ensures a level playing field for the UK merchant fleet because the Convention will require ships registered in other states to meet internationally agreed standards.”
