ILO- Adoption of Consolidated Maritime Labor Convention

Friday, February 24, 2006
The International Labor Organization (ILO) stated that the Conference held in Geneva adopted a comprehensive labor standard for the world’s maritime sector. The Provisional Record provides a background summary of development of the Convention. The Adoption Report is an explanation of the various provisions of the Convention. The Proposed Convention is the unofficial text of the Convention. The Report of the Director-General places the Convention in context with related activities of the ILO and the IMO. The Convention applies to ships larger than 500 gross tons engaged on international voyages. It will come into force after it has been ratified by 30 member states with a total share of at least 33% of the world’s gross tonnage. The European Commission issued a Press Release stating that it plans to support effective implementation of the Convention in the European Union and is exploring the possibility of incorporating the Convention into Community law.
