The consolidation and updates of the existing ILO requirements with reference to the working and living conditions of the seafarers, urge Shipowners to ensure on-going compliance with Flag state legislation.

The Convention has been adopted since August 2013. With its mandatory nature, the MLC 2006 becomes the forth driving force of the high quality shipping, along with SOLAS, MARPOL and STCW. Shipowners must ensure on-going compliance with flag state legislation. The convention applies to ships of 500 GT or over engaged in international voyages.

Seafarers in first place

Shipowners today clearly recognize the benefits to be gained from employing seafarers who are not only properly qualified, who not only display the professional standards and technical competence needed to manage today’s ships safely and efficiently….. but who also are properly treated in order to be able to offer the safest and quality service of a ship.

As ships need to comply with the Convention through holding a Maritime Labour Certificate and Declaration of Maritime Labour Compliance issued by the Flag state, PISR is capable to expertly assist the Companies by the establishment and implementation of Maritime Labour Management System.

A quick response, convenient timing inspection schedule, an impartial and informed advice and timely provided services are some of the advantages PISR provides you with.
