Maritime Labour Convention Implemented

A new version of Notice B from the Danish Maritime Authority, which enters into force on 1 August 2013, implements the recent provisions adopted by United Nations’ International Maritime Organization (IMO) and through EU cooperation.

A new part on seafarers’ working and living conditions will, inter alia, be incorporated. Thus, Denmark implements Maritime Labour Convention (MLC 2006) of the United Nations’ International Labour Organization (ILO). The new part in Notice B introduces a new inspection regime applicable to both new and existing ships engaged on domestic and international voyages. Ships engaged on international voyages must be approved and certified by 20 August 2013, at the latest. In general, MLC 2006 helps secure seafarers worldwide the same rights in the field of working and living conditions.
