Abstract These guide-lines were adopted by a tripartite ILO meeting of experts held in Geneva during October 1989. They are intended to assist ship inspectors, labour inspectors and others concerned with labour and social conditions on board ship to carry out examinations or inquiries. National laws and regulations or agreements between shipowners and seafearers relating to seafarers' labour and social conditions, laid down in conformity with the provisions of Convention No. 147, must be observed by both national and foreign flagships calling at their ports. Annex I contains substantive provisions of the Merchant Shipping (minimum Standards) Convention, 1976 (No.147) Annex II contains substantive provisions of the labour inspection (Seamen) Recommendation, 1926 (No.28).
