Abstract/Citation: These Regulations replace the Merchant Shipping (Maritime Labour Convention, 2006) Regulations 2011. The main change is to provide in the Schedule more detailed national standards with which shipowners have to comply, (though without substantive change). This results from discussions in the International Labour Office in December on the application of the Convention, and also the experience of Recognised Organisations and shipowners on the operation of the Regulations. In addition there are changes to the body of the Regulations, in that the requirements on certification is now placed in the Schedule, and the application to non-Antigua and Barbuda ships made more precise and in line with the planned operation of the Convention.
