For more details, see the British note MCA Marine Guidance Note – MLC 2006: Sailor`s Work Contracts In all cases, the sailor and the shipowner must have signed copies of the sea from all parties involved The Merchant Shipping (Maritime Labour Convention) (Minimum Requirements for Seafarersetc).) The 2014 MLC Minimum Requirements Regulations require that each sailor on board a vessel for which he is applying has an individual seaman`s employment contract (an “AES”). If a sailor is not employed directly by the shipowner, but by a third party (for example. B of a crew agency), the employer must be a contracting party to the SUP. In such cases, the shipowner (or an authorized signatory to the shipowner) must also sign the agreement to ensure that the shipowner will fulfill all of the employer`s obligations to the sea under Parts 1 and 2 of Schedule 1 of this MGN if the employer does not comply with these obligations. The “marin contract model for a occupied sailor” (see Schedule 2 of the MGN) accordingly provides for the employer, the shipowner and the sailor to sign the Seafar. The Standard Seafarer Employment Contract (SEA) has been updated as part of this communication and made available at: MODEL SEA Any sailor working on a British sea vessel applying the minimum requirements of the MLC must have a written SEA with another person regarding the seafarer`s work on a vessel; if the sailor is employed directly by the shipowner, the sea must be located between the sailor and the shipowner and be signed by both the sailor, the shipowner or an authorized signatory of the shipowner. Any signatory authorized by the shipowner to sign SEAS for sailors working on the vessel should be mentioned in the second part of the declaration on compliance with the rules relating to maritime work for the vessel. Under the 2006 Maritime Labour Agreement (`MLC`), any sailor working on a British sea vessel with which the Maritime Labour Convention (minimum requirements for seafarers, etc.) The 2014 rules (S.I. 2014/1613) must have a written sea with the shipowner/employer regarding the sailor`s work on board the vessel. Apprentices whose sole purpose for working on a ship is training are considered seafarers in the sense of commercial navigation (maritime labour agreement) (minimum requirements for seafarers, etc.). The 2014 regulations should have a training contract with a training provider. This training agreement can be considered fundamentally equivalent to an ESE.

The SEA guidelines are set out in the MGN 477 (M) and MIN 529 (M) guidelines on training agreements in MGN 485 (M). The SEA model for this communication has been updated and is available on the provided link. The following forms are available; MSF 4156, MSF 4157 and MSF 4158 . See ILo Frequently Asked Questions (section C5.2) under www.ilo.org/global/standards/maritime-labour-convention/what-it-does/faq/WCMS_177371/lang-en/index.htm This MGN should be read in association with MIN 529 (M). The Uk Maritime – Coastguard Agency (MCA) has published Seafarers` Guide 477 on seafarers` employment contracts for vessels subject to the minimum requirements of the MLC.
