IMO/ILO work on seafarer issues

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
