ISF issues guide on new ILO labour rules

ISF issues guide on new ILO labour rules

London: The International Shipping Federation has produced a comprehensive guide to
the obligations that ship operators must anticipate to ensure compliance with the new ILO Maritime Labour Convention. New ISF secretary general Tony Mason says: "It is very important that employers become acquainted with their new responsibilities as soon as possible, so that they are prepared when the new ILO Convention enters into force and can avoid misunderstqandings with port state control authorities. Although the
majority of employers should have no major difficulties with the new requirements, which for the most part are consistent with the existing ISF guidelines on good employment practice, it will be especially important for them to be aware of the new Flag State certification procedures which the ILO Convnetion introduces, and the need to maintain a Document of Maritime Labour Compliance." The guide is available from  [10/10/06]
