MLC 2006 certification

Tuesday 3rd of September 2013

Focus Shipmanagement is pleased to announce that it has successfully passed the MLC 2006 certification by the Flag States and Bureau Veritas. Focus Shipmanagement and its fleet of 17 modern multipurpose cargo vessels are now certified in fully compliance with the MLC 2006 Convention.


The International Labour Organisation’s MLC 2006 came in force on the 20th of August 2013 and is a comprehensive convention which fundamentally improves the living and working conditions of seafarers. Focus Shipmanagement’s full compliance with MLC 2006, in advance of the mandatory compliance date, is indicative of commitment to excellence. Focus Shipmanagement embraced the spirit and intent of the convention while embedding continuous compliance practices into its management process.


Focus Shipmanagement wants to emphasize the ungoing support of both its crew on board as well as its Class Society Bureau Veritas which has both a significant contribution during the certification process.
