To date, 25 countries with 56% of the world tonnage have ratified the ILO Maritime Labour Convention 2006, the “bill of rights” for seafarers. With five more expected to come on board this year, the treaty can enter into force by 2013. But how many seafarers and shipping executives have bothered to read MLC 2006? Those who are too lazy to read the full text (downloadable from the ILO website) can watch the DVD produced by US-based Maritime Training Services. It condenses 100 pages of MLC 2006 regulations into a 14-minute video with all bases covered – not least, compliance and requirements and what to do in case of violations. Check it out. ~Barista Uno
