Updated International Group FAQs for Members regarding Maritime Labour Convention
The entry into force of the 2014 amendments to MLC on 18 January 2017 raised a number of complex and novel questions. These FAQs are intended to provide guidance to assist Members and Clubs in complying with the amendments.
While efforts have been made to provide clarity, uncertainty remains on some aspects of the financial security requirements. There may also be differences in the way some states implement and enforce the amendments. These FAQs should not be regarded as providing definitive legal advice and Members should also consult their flag state authorities.
Please see updated Group FAQ for Members on our MLC-website.
