546 Nigeria Laws


Nigeria has ratified 40 conventions passed by the International Maritime Organization and International Labour Organisation covering Maritime Safety, Labour and Marine Environment. So far 19 of the conventions have been domesticated by way of regulation, adoption or incorporation under the Merchant Shipping Act of 2007. The Agency is currently working on ratifying an additional six IMO conventions before the end of 2019 to ensure that Nigeria as an IMO member state fulfills its treaty obligation.
