NL 272/22 | MCI - MLC Hours of Work and Rest Tool – updated for 2022 (Circular 254/2021)

May 27, 2022

Refers to: Ship Owners / Managers / Operators of CI flagged vessels, PHRS Surveyors / Representatives     

Action Date: Immediate


In order to simplify the correct application of the MLC Regulation 2.3 – Hours of work and hours of rest – and to prevent non-conformities raised by external auditors or Port State Control, it is strongly recommended to employ the MLC Work Rest Tool, which will allow you to monitor MLC hours of work and rest and will help to identify immediately any inability to comply with the MLC Regulation 2.3.


In applying the MLC standards, each vessel shall take account of the danger posed by the fatigued seafarers, especially those whose duties involve navigational safety and the safe and secure operation of the ship.


The Circular 254/2021 can be found here in full detail.



Do not hesitate to contact us for more information you may need on the above.
