The Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) and the offshore wind farm industry
The Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) will enter into force internationally on 20 August 2013.
This is a new international convention which will be the ‘fourth pillar’ of the international regulatory regime for quality shipping, sitting alongside the MARPOL, STCW and SOLAS conventions.
The aim of the MLC is to ensure that all seafarers globally (of which there are estimated to be 1.2 million) benefit from minimum standards of employment, better information about their employment rights and an enhanced enforcement regime.
