Crew agencies get MLC nod

ADVERTISEMENT

Two yacht crew placement agencies have been found compliant with MLC 2006 Convention requirements.

“We are delighted to have gained compliancy prior to the Convention entering into force in August of this year,” said Debbie Blazy, director of Camper & Nicholsons Crew Placement Division. “The convention clarifies the rights and responsibilities of all crew members and we believe that this will have a very positive impact on the industry.”

YPI Crew also has been awarded full MLC 2006 accreditation by the Lloyd’s Register.



“It is important because for the first time owners and crew now know where they stand on all important employment elements,” said Laurence Lewis, director of YPI Crew. “The convention has set down a basic framework allowing for an honest transparency between all parties. I believe that will result in significantly improved relations which in turn, will have a direct effect on how well the yachts are run and indeed on the quality of charter service offered.”



The accreditation does not change the way the companies operate, but gives assurance to anyone requesting a candidate that all 14 points stated in the MLC 2006 convention have been checked. This also means that all candidates will have provided valid documentation before stepping onboard a yacht.
