Chapter Summary

This chapter examines each of the regulations and associated Code provisions in Title 1 of the MLC, 2006 highlighting points of particular interest or difficulty. It briefly examines the regulations and the provisions in Part A (Standards) and Part B (Guidelines) of the Code of the MLC, 2006. Title 1 may seem anomalous as both its name, 'Minimum Requirements for Seafarers to Work on a Ship', and content does not appear to address seafarer's social and employment rights. The chapter demonstrates that there was a conscious policy of integration-even to the point of transferring responsibility to another competent UN organization-to avoid conflicting requirements in international agreements. Finally the examination of regulations and associated code provisions in Title 1 of the MLC, 2006 shows the development and modernization of provisions found in earlier maritime labour conventions.
