The Impact of the ILO MLC will have on Superyachts

The international Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) will have a huge impact for seafarers, managers and owners involved with Superyachts.
Last April Organisers of the Antibes Yacht Show reported that the most popular seminar was the one organised by Nautilus International and D&B Services, where almost 100 people turned up to hear how the MLC regulations, scheduled to come into effect in 2011 will affect issues such as superyacht accommodation and employment standards.
A promise was made that a follow-up workshop would occur when further consultation had taken place with the authorities in particular on accommodation specifications.
Now Nautilus has organised a further MLC workshop at which a presentation will be made by Neil Atkinson, Marine Surveyor, Maritime & Coastguard Agency, explaining the MCA’s proposals for MLC compliant large yachts.

Nautilus International and their strategic partners believe they are best placed to represent members, owners and authorities that align themselves with the UK, as we are the representative body for seafarers within this domain.
They deal with authorities locally, across Europe and internationally on all our members’ and partners’ interests and we have direct access to the likes of the ILO where policy is determined.
