||Since its creation in 1919, the ILO has adopted more than 50 conventions and recommendations relating to the working and living conditions of seafarers. However, substantial variations in living and working conditions continue to exist between vessels operating under different flags. The objective of this report was to document current practice regarding regulations which protect seafarers at work. A questionnaire on working conditions, recruitment issues, conditions of employment, repatriation and health and welfare was sent to 60 ILO member states. Case reports from the following countries are included: Denmark; India; Isle of Man; Panama; Philippines. The report concludes in favour of continued regulation at the national and international levels and calls for better enforcement of existing regulations.
