MGN 487 (M) Amendment 1 Maritime Labour Convention, 2006: On-shore Complaints

This note provides guidance to owners, operators and seafarers on the UK provisions on the MCA’s handling of complaints made to the MCA relating to the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 (MLC).

Regulation 13 of the Merchant Shipping (Maritime Labour Convention) (Survey and Certification) Regulations 2013 (S.I. 2013/1785) makes provision for seafarers on UK ships to raise a complaint relating to the MLC with the MCA. 

However, any seafarer on any ship in a UK port may complain to an MCA surveyor and the MCA will handle that complaint in the manner set out in this note.
