Our Crew Placement Division Receives MLC 2006 Compliancy
Camper & Nicholsons Crew Placement Division has been undergoing intensive preparations over the last few months in order to adapt their procedures to meet the new MLC 2006 Convention requirements.
This important Convention has been created to harmonise and revise existing seafarers’ regulations, to include comprehensive rights and protection at work for seafarers throughout the world.
Camper & Nicholsons are proud to announce that the Crew Placement Division was audited on the 23rd of April and passed the MLC 2006 audit with flying colours. Debbie Blazy, Director of the Crew Placement Division announced: “We are delighted to have gained compliancy prior to the Convention entering into force in August of this year. Our team has concentrated all its efforts into making this happen. The convention clarifies the rights and responsibilities of all crew members and we believe that this will have a very positive impact on the industry.”
What will this change for clients using our services? In principle there will be no change to the quality of the candidates we put forth, but it will certainly give the assurance to anyone requesting a candidate that all 14 points stated in the MLC 2006 convention have been thoroughly checked.
Those responsible for crew recruitment onboard any MLC certified yacht can now be sure that Camper & Nicholsons is a fully compliant crew placement agency and is in line with the Declaration of Maritime Labour Compliancy (DMLC). Furthermore, this significant compliance means that all candidates will have provided valid documentation before stepping onboard their yacht.
