THE ILO MARITIME LABOUR CONVENTION, 2006 GUIDANCE FOR SHIP OPERATORS ON PORT STATE CONTROL AS FROM 20 AUGUST 2013

THE ILO MARITIME
LABOUR CONVENTION, 2006
GUIDANCE FOR SHIP OPERATORS ON PORT STATE CONTROL AS FROM 20 AUGUST 2013
International Shipping Federation
INTERNATIONAL CHAMBER OF SHIPPING
On 20 August 2013, the ILO Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) will enter into force and ship operators will need to be ready.
At the 2006 Diplomatic Conference which adopted the MLC, ILO also adopted a Resolution which recommends that Port State Control (PSC) should not commence until 12 months after entry into force, i.e. August 2014. However, some port states, if they have ratified the MLC, may still decide to subject ships to PSC inspections to check compliance with the MLC from 20 August 2013.*
The following advice is intended to help ship operators avoid potential PSC problems.
The ILO MLC addresses a wide range of matters including shipping companies’ obligations regarding seafarers’ contractual arrangements, oversight of manning agencies, working hours, health and safety, crew accommodation, catering standards, and seafarers’ welfare.
Provided that they put in the effort, the vast majority of companies should not have any difficulty complying with the substance of the Convention, which in large part is derived from existing ILO maritime standards and accepted good employment practice.

DBS CONCENTRATED INSPECTION CAMPAIGN (CIC) ON PROPULSION AND AUXILIARY MACHINERY (PAAM)

Their PSC division is initiating
the second Concentrated
Inspection Campaign (CIC)
on propulsion and auxiliary
machinery for all cargo ships
under DBS starting on July
15, 2013.

Following the satisfactory results of the previous CIC, DBS PSC division in co-operation with the
