Close date: 12 October 2016

The Maritime Coastguard Agency consults on the consolidation of the Merchant Shipping (Hours of Work) Regulations 2002 (SI 2002/2125) and two amending Regulations. The consultation is seeking views on the draft Merchant Shipping (Maritime Labour Convention) (Hours of Work) Regulations 2016 and draft Merchant Shipping Notice, which supports the draft legislation.

The draft Regulations will replace the current Regulations and make notable changes in relation to: incorporating the limitations on exceptions from the hours of rest provisions; and simplifying the enforcement procedures.
