BBL is proud to announce that we have been fully certified according to MLC 2006.
The welfare of our employees has always been at the forefront of our minds and we have always provided for and remunerated our seafarers to the highest standards and we feel that our MLC 2006 accreditation further shows our commitment to ensuring the best standards possible.
Although our conditions were already well above the minimum statutory requirements we feel that all seafarers regardless for whom or where they are employed have the right to a decent wage and safe and healthy working conditions.
In addition to the security this brings seaferers, MLC 2006 also ensures a level-playing field for countries and shipowners who, until now, have paid the price of being undercut by those who operate substandard ships.
