Maritime Labour Convention 2006 (“MLC”)
Oceanskies holds a Statement of Compliance by Lloyd’s Register meaning that it is fully compliant with standard A1.4 and guidelines B1.4 of the Maritime Labour Convention 2006 (“MLC”).
Oceanskies Crew employs all of its crew in an MLC environment regardless of whether they are working on a private or commercial yacht.
The International Labour Organisation’s MLC provides comprehensive rights and protection at work for the world’s seafarers.
It sets out seafarers’ rights to acceptable conditions of employment and aims to be globally applicable, easily understandable, readily updatable and uniformly enforced.
A key requirement of the MLC is the necessity of seafarers to have access to efficient and well-regulated seafarer recruitment and placement system.
Companies such as Oceanskies Crew that provide crew recruitment and employment services to commercial yachts will have to hold a ‘Statement of MLC Compliance’ confirming that they are operating in accordance with Standard A1.4 and guidelines B1.4 of the MLC requirements.
