Maritime Labour Convention

The Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 (MLC) is an international convention developed under the International Labour Organization (ILO). It consolidates a number of existing labour conventions, while introducing modern standards relating to the working and living conditions of seafarers at sea.

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) is the competent authority responsible for regulation of the Convention and its requirements in Australia.
