1 Liberian Administration Implementing the ILO a Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 Imabari-9 th / Tokyo-10 th November,

2 PURPOSE of MLC, 2006 The Maritime Labour Convention has two primary purposes: to bring existing labour standards d closer to the workers concerned, in a form consistent with the rapidly developing, globalized sector (ensuring decent work ); to improve the application of the system stem so that shipowners and governments interested in providing decent conditions of work do not have to bear an unequal burden in ensuring protection ( level-playing field - fair competition) Fourth pillar of international maritime regulatory regime, because it will, when it enters into force, stand beside the key IMO Conventions, SOLAS, MARPOL & STCW, that support quality shipping and help to eliminate substandard shipping. 2

3 BACKGROUND of MLC, 2006 Brings together into a consolidated text 68 ILO Conventions and instruments into a single comprehensive international legal instrument. Contains new subjects, particularly in the area of occupational safety and health to meet current health concerns, such as fatigue, the effects of noise and vibration on workers or other workplace risks. The 37 maritime labour Conventions that are now consolidated (revised) by the MLC, 2006 will be gradually phased out as States that are now party to these Conventions ratify the new Convention. 3

4 STRUCTURE of MLC, 2006 Structure is similar to STCW Convention Articles Regulations a two- part Code comprised of Part A (mandatory Standards) and Part B (non-mandatory Guidelines) 16 Articles, definitions, scope of application, entry into force, core rights and principles and the basic obligations of Members ratifying the Convention Regulations set out more detailed provisions and obligations Code contains the details for the implementation of the Regulations 4

5 STRUCTURE of MLC, 2006 Article II Definition and scope of application Art II, para 1 (f) seafarer - comprehensive definition and reflects the greater awareness of the range of people employed at sea Provides for a national level determination in the event of doubt as to whether any categories of persons are regarded as seafarers under the Convention Resolution 7 adopted by the Conference provides guidance and criteria to be considered by national authorities 5

6 STRUCTURE of MLC, 2006 Article II, paragraph 1(i) defines ships Applies to all ships other than those navigating exclusively in inland waters, sheltered waters or areas where port regulations apply Expressly excludes fishing vessels, ships of traditional build (dhows, junks) and warships/naval auxiliaries Art II, para 5 provides for a national level determination in the event of doubt with respect to a ship or particular category of ships 6

7 STRUCTURE of MLC, 2006 Article II, paragraph 11(i) defines shipowner based on the definition in ILO No. 179 and is similar to the definition of a company adopted by the IMO in SOLAS (in the ISM Code) and STCW reflects the principle that shipowners are the responsible employers under the Convention for all seafarers on board their ships, irrespective the employment or ship management contractual arrangements; Is identified as the shipowner on the Declaration of Maritime Labour Compliance and Seafarers Employment Agreement still have the right to recover the costs involved from others who may also have responsibility for the employment of a particular seafarer 7

8 STRUCTURE of MLC, 2006 Article IV - Seafarers employment and social rights Article IV the seafarers bill of rights - all seafarers are entitled to: a safe and secure workplace that complies with safety standards fair terms of employment decent working and living conditions on board ship health protection, medical care, welfare measures and other forms of social protection rights are then set out in detail in the Titles (in the Regulations and Code provisions) of the Convention 8

9 STRUCTURE of MLC, 2006 Article V Implementation and enforcement responsibilities provides the legal foundation for the provisions on compliance and enforcement in Title 5 establishes the principle of no more favourable treatment, a principle i found in key IMO conventions requires a ratifying Member to apply Convention standards to a foreign ship in its ports (if it chooses to inspect the ship), even if the flag State of the ship has not ratified the Convention requires Members to effectively exercise jurisdiction and control over seafarer recruitment and placement services, if these are established in its territory services, 9

10 STRUCTURE of MLC, 2006 Article VIII - Entry into force much higher than usual ratification level (for ILO Conventions) with a new formula designed to assure greater actual impact Convention shall come into force 12 months after the date on which it has been ratified by at least 30 Members with a with total share in the world gross tonnage of ships of at least 33 per cent. Current status - 10 States with total share of world gross tonnage exceeding 33 per cent. 10
