Although the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) officially takes effect on August 20th, the Danish Maritime Authority has provided exemptions to shipowners. Therefore, shipowners who do not have the full certificate but do fulfill most requirements can be granted an exemption for up to six months following August 20th, writes the Danish Maritime Authority in an e-mail to ShippingWatch.

“The Danish Maritime Authority has authorized the approved classification societies to grant exemptions to ships of up to six months following August 20th 2013,” writes ship surveyor of the Danish Maritime Authority Dorthe Weesgaard Asbæk Sørensen.
