Tanzania ratifies MLC

26 April 2019

Tanzania has become the 93rd member state of the International Labour Organization (ILO) to ratify the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006, as amended (MLC 2006). The MLC sets out minimum international working and living conditions for seafarers on board vessels.

The latest signing – which takes coverage by the MLC to more than 91 percent of world shipping – is a further boost for the ILO campaign to see 100 member states ratify the MLC in this its centenary year.

The MLC will enter into force for Tanzania in April 2020, one year after its ratification.
