First month of MLC detains eight

ADVERTISEMENT

During the first month of enforcement under the new Maritime Labour Convention (MLC 2006), eight vessels were detained for deficiencies, meaning 12 percent of the total of 68 detentions were MLC related.



The detentions were imposed by four port states: Canada (three ships), Denmark (one ship), the Russian Federation (one ship) and Spain (three ships). The detained ships were flying the flag of Cyprus (two ships), Liberia, the Marshall Islands, the Netherlands, Panama (two ships) and Tanzania.



Other interesting figures during the first month of MLC:

* A total of 4,260 deficiencies have been recorded;

* 494 deficiencies (11.5 percent) were related to ILO Conventions;

* 30 of these (6.1 percent) were serious enough for detention;

* 23 of those 30 (76.7 percent) were related to breaches of the MLC and resulted in the detention of eight individual ships;

* The total number of detentions was 68 during 1,532 inspections, which resulted in a detention rate of 4.4 percent.



The MLC 2006 applies to all ships engaged in commercial activities. It entered into force on Aug. 20. Only member states who ratified the MLC 2006 on or before Aug. 20, 2012, can conduct port state control inspections on their requirements.
