Detail

The second part of the ‘Maritime Labour Certificate’, this form (also known as DMLC-Part II) is to be filled in by by the ship owner.

The surveyor must confirm that it’s genuine when the first inspection is finished.

DMLC-Part II:

  • outlines what the shipowner needs to do to meet the national requirements (the 14 items listed in Appendix A5.1 of the MLC, 2006)
  • shows the measures suggested to make sure that improvement continues
  • must be written in clear terms
  • is designed to help everyone involved to easily check that the requirements are being put in place properly

Shipowners with ships under a number of flags are advised to keep DMLC-Part II generic, rather than producing one specifically for each flag state.
