First MLC 2006 Certificate to Thenamaris

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

Established in 2006, the primary goal of the MLC is to be a pillar in the international maritime regulatory framework, establishing a level playing field for seafarers’ working and living conditions. While MLC 2006 is not expected to come into force before December 2011 (based upon the EU’s scheduled ratification of the conventions by the end of 2010), DNV has already worked with some shipowners, including Thenamaris, to develop services for handling the convention, including the development of effective procedures and certification ahead of compliance deadlines.

Late last autumn, DNV’s MLC inspectors, headed by Frantziskos Kamizoulis, joined Thenamaris Ships Management aboard the M/T Seacrown to verify that the product carrier was in compliance in all the 14 areas which the Maritime Labour Convention specifies must be inspected before certificates can be issued.

“We feel that the convention rightly focuses on the most precious asset of our shipping community – our seafarers,” said E. Vordonis, an executive director of Thenamaris. “We took the initiative to work with DNV to ensure our shore- and vessel-based systems are consistent with the new rules well ahead of compliance deadlines.”
