Results of Inspection Campaign on MLC 2006


The Paris MoU's Concentrated Inspection Campaign (CIC) on Maritime Labour Convention (MLC), 2006 carried out from 1 September to 30 November 2016 has shown positive results on certificates attesting medical fitness (98.2%), the verification of records of the inspections of the accommodation (98%), food and catering (97.4%), and existence of a safety committee (99.1%).  The aim of the CIC was to verify that the minimum standards for working and living conditions have been implemented on board.  Most of the 3674 ships inspected during the CIC were general cargo/multi-purpose ships, 1062 (28.9%) inspections and bulk carriers with 789 (21.5%) inspections. The  campaign resulted in 42 detentions (1.1%) directly linked to the MLC, 2006 non-compliance on Seafarers Employment Agreements (6.5%) and the availability of the onboard complaint procedure (5%).
