The Chamber will be hosting an online-only training course on the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 (MLC); how it has come to be the fourth pillar of international regulation for shipping, alongside SOLAS, MARPOL and STCW.
The course will be presented by Tim Springett and Hannah Gilbert of the Chamber.
The Chamber has represented UK shipowners both in the negotiations leading up to the MLC, and in the meetings where changes have been made since. This introductory course is designed to give an overview of the provisions of the MLC, including whom it applies to, the protections that it offers to seafarers, the obligations that are placed on shipowners and Governments and anticipated future developments. There will also be time for questions at the end.
