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
