The training package responds to the needs for training material while being consistent with the requirements of the Work in Fishing Convention, 2007 (No. 188), to the “Guidelines on flag State inspection of working and living conditions on board fishing vessels” and to the “Guidelines for port State control officers carrying out inspections under the Work in Fishing Convention, 2007 (No. 188)”. It further draws upon the wealth of practical experiences on labour inspection in the fishing sector gained in recent years from ILO’s constituents and projects. In particular, it seeks to promote cooperation and coordination among the many authorities that may have a role in the inspection of living and working conditions on fishing vessels, with the aim of ensuring decent work for all fishers.
