The current post-graduate thesis is referred to the new Maritime Labor Convention entered into force on 20 August 2013. It is consisted of three main chapters. In the first chapter, the nature of seafaring and the difficulties this entails and the reasons which led to the adoption of the new convention, is presented. Towards this direction of reviewing old conventions obsolete with small percentages of ratifications and harmonizing them into a single text, the role of the International Labor Organization and hence that of member states to ratify and implement the requirements of MLC is determining. In the second chapter we present the structure and the areas covered. The remarkable new item added that differentiates this new convention from previous conventions is the strong enforcement and compliance regime which is created and imposed by the introduction of Maritime Labor Certificate and the Declaration of Maritime Labor Compliance which are considered official documents and checked by the competent authorities (Flag, Classification Societies, port authorities). Thus, in the third chapter the new obligations of ship owners, in order to obtain the certificates and be consistent with the new regulations, are listed and we also examine the utility of a Gap Analysis to help them fill the gaps. Finally, in this chapter we investigate the way in which the MLC can improve problems associated with maritime labor.
