ILO Maritime Labour Convention The ILO's Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 provides comprehensive rights and protection at work for the world's more than 1.2 million seafarers. The new labour standard consolidates and updates more than 65 international labour standards related to seafarers adopted over the last 80 years. The Convention sets out seafarers' rights to decent conditions of work on a wide range of subjects, and aims to be globally applicable, easily understandable, readily updatable and uniformly enforced. It has been designed to become a global instrument known as the "fourth pillar" of the international regulatory regime for quality shipping, complementing the key Conventions of the International Maritime Organization (IMO). Source: ILO - all ships Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) 1 July 2013 (expected) MEPC 62 IMO's MEPC has adopted an amendment to MARPOL Annex VI (new chapter 4) regarding the reduction of greenhouse gas emmisions by ships. The aim of the amendment is to improve the energy effeciency performance of ships. To reach this goal an Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) for new buildings will be established. Further a ship-specific Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) has to be developed by shipowners or operators for all of their ships. - for all cargo ships over 400gt. Annual Testing of AIS 1 July 2012 MSC.308(88) The automatic identification system (AIS) shall be subjected to an annual test. The test shall be conducted by an approved surveyor or an approved testing or servicing facility. The test shall verify the correct programming of the

ship static information, correct data exchange with connected sensors as well as verifying the radio performance by radio frequency measurement and on-air test using, e.g., a Vessel Traffic Service (VTS). A copy of the test report shall be retained on board the ship. - for all cargo ships over 150gt. STCW Manila Amendments 1 January 2012 (transitional period until 31 Dec 2016) STCW - Manila Conference The Manila Amendments of STCW include a lot of changes e.g.: adaptation of rest time hours to ILO-180 and MLC, approved Bridge Resource Management knowledges for navigational watch officers, new ECDIS approved training requirements for navigational watch officers, ... Although the amendments enter into force at the beginning of next year there is a big transitional period until 31 December 2016. But finally any endorsement of training certificats as well as the issuance of new Certificates of Competency (CoC) is a matter of Flagstates. Owners/Operators should observe corresponding flagstate circulars in this regard where national rules will be laid down or should contact their flagstate administrations for national action dates. - for all ships.

The system monitors the awareness of the Officer of the Watch (OOW) and automatically alerts the Master or another qualified OOW if for any reason the OOW becomes incapable of performing the OOW's duties. This purpose is achieved by a series of indications and alarms to alert first the OOW and, if he is not responding, then to alert the Master or another qualified OOW. Additionally, the BNWAS may provide the OOW with a means of calling for immediate assistance, if required.
