Abstract This report was prepared for the International Labour Conference (ILC) 94th (Maritime) Session, 7-23 February 2006. It provides an overview of the background to the proposed consolidated maritime labour Convention (see Report I (1B), CIS 06-864) and its expected impact along with detailed discussions of individual provisions. The proposed Convention would replace almost all of the more than 60 maritime Conventions and Recommendations adopted by the ILC since 1920.
