Abstract The ILO is set to adopt in 2005 a consolidated maritime labour convention. The preparation of the draft progresses through a series of meetings and conferences. More than 60 maritime Conventions and Recommendations applying to the shipping industry are to be merged with the necessary updating into a current instrument. Medical-related subjects which will be prominent in this new instrument include medical certificates, fitness of seafarers, medical care, health and safety, food, and welfare. Other features of this new instrument are its rights-based approach, the simplified amendment procedure and its improved enforcement. This set of documents comprising the recommended draft for a Convention on maritime labour standards, the commentary to the draft, and a guide consists of the documentation submitted as a basis for discussion at the Preparatory Technical Maritime Conference to be held in Geneva, Switzerland, 12-24 September 2004.
