Cyprus Ratifies MLC

The Cyprus Shipping Chamber has welcomed the ratification of the Maritime Labour Convention 2006 and its integration into the national legislation.

This, the Chamber said, will further enhance Cyprus’ maritime in­fra­struc­tu­re, as well as its image as a reliable and constantly developing maritime centre.

According to a press release, the ratification bill includes mechanisms that will allow the Flag State to effectively exercise its jurisdiction and control over ships that fly its flag by establishing a system for ensuring compliance with the requirements of the Convention, including regular inspections, reporting, and legal proceedings under the applicable law, as well as, ensure that ships that fly its flag carry a “Maritime Labour Certificate” and a “Declaration of Maritime Labour Compliance” as required by the Convention
