Placement agencies certified

ADVERTISEMENT

Fraser’s placement agency, The Crew Network, has received its MLC 2006 certificate of approval for its Ft. Lauderdale division, making it certified under the Convention as an authorized Crew Placement Agency.

Ft. Lauderdale-based Elite Crew International received its certification last summer and is believed to be the first agency to so be recognized.



The Maritime Labor Convention’s purpose as it relates to the “Recruitment and Placement of Crew” is to ensure that all crew have access to an efficient and properly regulated recruitment and placement service. Some of the direct advantages to using a certified MLC 2006 agency for crew include proper documentation control, fair and equal representation of all crew, and zero costs or fees for representation.



For yacht owners and captains this translates to properly qualified candidates, easier flag and/or port state control inspections, and the reliability of working with professionally trained crewing consultants that are trained and certified in MLC 2006 procedures.
