MLC 2006

The Maritime Law Convention (MLC) 2006 is a comprehensive international employment Convention adopted by the ILO International Labour Conference in February 2006 which aims to ensure comprehensive worldwide protection of the rights of seafarers. It establishes a level playing field for countries and ship owners committed to providing decent working and living conditions for seafarers, protecting them from unfair competition from substandard ships.

More than 100 pages long, the MLC 2006 sets minimum requirements for nearly every aspect of working and living conditions for seafarers including recruitment and placement practices, conditions of employment, hours of work and rest, repatriation, annual leave, payment of wages, accommodation, recreational facilities, food and catering, health protection, occupational safety and health, medical care, onshore welfare services and social protection.

TYS LIMITED does not charge the seafarer directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, any fees or other charges for seafarer recruitment or placement of for providing employment to seafarers.

The seafarer, will however, bear the cost of obtaining his/her own national statutory medical certificate, the national seafarers book, passport and/or other similar personal travel documents, not including the cost of visas which shall be born by the shipowner.
