OCIMF - Recommendations Relating to the Application of Requirements Governing Seafarers' Hours of Work and Rest
With the entry into force of the 2010 Manila amendments to the STCW Convention and the 2006 Maritime Labour Convention (MLC 2006), it is expected that Port State Control procedures will pay increasing attention to ensuring compliance with the requirements. There is a risk that variations in interpretation of the regulations by Port States will increase the likelihood of deficiencies being reported and/or vessels being detained.
This information paper highlights areas of concern with regard to potential ambiguities and differing interpretations of the Conventions' requirements. The paper considers minimum expectations to ensure compliance with related provisions and recommendations are provided for the information of OCIMF members and the managers and crews of applicable vessels.
