We know that there is a high demand of skilled and experienced seafarers worldwide. Due to this we have started to use our large network and knowledge in shipping to help our clientele vessels at a fair cost.
It is common today, that the shipping companies outsource the manning of the ship to dedicated crew manning offices, but are you prepared for the changes?
With the new Maritime Labor Convention there will be new requirements for Ship owners and suppliers of such services.
Upon entry into force of the Maritime Labour Convention, all private recruitment and placement services (Crew Manning Office) in ratifying states must be operated under a system of licensing, certification or some other form of regulation.
When recruiting seafarers from a non-ratifying state the obligation to ensure compliance, as far as reasonable, falls on the ship owner.
In order for crew manning offices to comply with the requirements of the Maritime Labor Convention, the ”Standard for Certification of Crew Manning Offices, Private Recruitment & Placement Services – 3.404” was revised and published in October 2007.
"AC" has developed services based on the standard.
In cooperation with certified organizations, these are now available to customers and are including the following:
- Seminars - Training - Gap analysis - Certification for compliance
