CIRCULAR REF: 2017/002

CIRCULATED TO ALL MEMBERS AND BROKERS

Reference is made to Circulars 2016/016, 2016/024 and 2016/030 which set out the effect of various amendments to the Maritime Labour Convention and how the Club will deal with the requirements for vessels to carry MLC Certificates. 

At their meeting of 10 November 2016, the Members Board approved various amendments to the Club’s Rules to reflect that MLC Certificates will be provided and the fact that the MLC cover/certification regime is set out in the Club’s MLC extension clause (see /maritime-labour-convention/) which forms part of a vessel’s terms of entry when an MLC Certificate is provided.  The amendments to the relevant Rules are set out in the attachment to this Circular, and will take effect at 0000 hours on 18 January 2017.
