HMC’s CrewPlan Fulfills Requirements of New MLC Regulations

The International Labour Organization (ILO) has received the 30th ratification of the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 (MLC, 2006) fulfilling the last condition for the first global standard that spans continents and oceans to go into effect on August 20, 2013. The new labour standard consolidates and updates more than 63 international labour standards related to the maritime sector adopted over the last 30 years.

The objective is to certify the working and living conditions of all ships over 500 GT in the International trade.

In general HMC (Hydrographic and Marine Consultants) software systems support the objective of the ISM to ensure safe operations as meant in article 1.2.. Article 3.2 concerning responsibilities and authorisations using CrewPlan are also supported. Chapter 5 is supported by the different log in levels and the checks on certificates. Physical checks and qualifications of the crew comply to chapter 6 on resources and personnel.

HMC’s CrewPlan helps complying to these MLC regulations by managing crew certificates, physical checks, on and off times and managing documents. The program gives automatic warnings for the renewal of certificates with expiry dates and has the ability to combine crew and voyage schedules.

CrewPlan supports the certification proving that the shipowner and its fleet meet the requirements of all new regulations. Furthermore it has an efficient and user-friendly interface.

In contrary to existing crew management systems, CrewPlan focuses on small to medium sized shipping companies with up to 10 vessels in business.
