INTERTANKO's Human Element Committee reviews ISF's guide to the Maritime Labour Convention 2006

INTERTANKOs Human Element in Shipping Committee (HEiSC) has reviewed the "ILO Maritime Labour Convention - A Guide for the Shipping Industry" published by the International Shipping Federation (ISF). The HEiSC agrees that this publication does cover those essential elements of the Convention that owners/managers need to be aware of. ¨


The Convention, which is not yet in force, will require all ships to be issued with certificates to confirm that the ship complies with the provisions of the Convention.


The HEiSC believes that this publication will assist owners/managers in understanding the Convention, and also be a tool to ensure that they fulfil the requirements for certification.


Copies of the publication may be obtained from the ISF by following this link:
