The Paris Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has announced that it will be conducting a concentrated inspection campaign (CIC) on the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 (MLC, 2006 or Convention). This CIC’s purpose is to ensure that the minimum standards for working and living conditions have been implemented on board ships.

The CIC will be held for three (3) months, beginning 01 September 2016 through 30 November 2016. During this time, Port State Control (PSC) Officers will use a list of 12 selected questions to ensure that the required certificates and documentation are present, in particular those related to the seafarers on board. Additionally, there are questions aimed at verification of records of the inspections of the accommodation, food and catering and whether a safety committee has been established.
