Seminar Information

Tuesday, June 24

8:00 AM - 10:00 AM

Topic: The Climate on Crewing has Changed; The Maritime Labor Convention 2006 Enters Into Force (Continental Breakfast served)
Location: Sunset Terrace Tent
Guest Speaker: Michelle Otero Valdés, B.C.S., Chalos & Co., P.C., International Law Firm, Coral Gables, FL

Overview: The Maritime Labor Convention, commonly referred to as the “MLC”, has been looming on the horizon since 2006 and is truly a climate change for vessel owners, operators, crewing agents, ship builders, hull insurers, P&I insurers and others with a stake in vessel operations. On August 20, 2013, the MLC entered into force and institutes minimum standards of living conditions, fair employment practices and other employment protection for vessel crew on a worldwide basis. While many yacht owners and operators are under the impression that the MLC does not affect them, the MLC in fact directly impacts the operations of every vessel engaged in charter service.

Presentation will cover:

  • Significant changes in the manager-employee climate as it relates to full and part time crew
  • The issues of ratification by the various flag states; who this will affect and what the affected industry players should know about the new requirements
