IMO legal panel okays application of fair seafarer treatment rules

THE UN's International Maritime Organisation (IMO) legal committee has endorsed the application of the 2006 guidelines on the fair treatment of seafarers involved in maritime accidents, reports London's Tanker Operator.

This decision followed a survey of IMO member states conducted by the Seafarers' Rights International (SRI) lobby requesting information on how the states had passed the guidelines into law.

While some states who replied have already passed the provisions into law, others say the guidelines are under consideration.

The committee called on further states to answer the survey, their responses analysed and for the analysis be reported back to the next session of the Legal Committee in 2015.

Said SRI director Deirdre Fitzpatrick: "Seafarers face many risks on a daily basis and knowing that they will be accorded fair and proper treatment will make the profession more attractive for new recruits."
