IMO has established joint working groups with ILO on seafarer issues.
A joint ILO/IMO working group has developed relevant guidelines:
- Guidelines on fair treatment of seafarers in the event of a maritime accident
- Guidelines on Liability and Compensation regarding Claims for Death, Personal Injury and Abandonment of Seafarers. (See also the 2014 amendments to the ILO MLC Convention.)
- Guidelines on Provision of Financial Security in Case of Abandonment of Seafarers
