Application: All ship-owners, operators, Masters and Officers of merchant ships and authorized Classification Societies, Barbados Registrars and Nautical Inspectors.
The DMLC certificate consists of two parts: DMLC-Part I and DMLC-Part II. Once the DMLC Part I is issued, the company shall complete the Declaration of Maritime Labour Compliance Part II (DMLC-Part II), indicating the actions taken to ensure permanent compliance with the national requirements during the periods between inspections, as well as the measures proposed for guaranteeing continuous improvement of the aspects subject to inspection.
Subsequent amendments made to the DMLC Part II including revised or additional documents and procedures mentioned in DMLC Part II, have proven it necessary to clarify the validity of the MLC certificate after such amendments.
Amendments to the DMLC-Part II do not require submission to the Barbados Maritime Ship Registry, however these changes shall be recorded on a revision sheet. The revision sheet shall be kept onboard together with the current DMLC Part II and a copy attached to the request for mandatory periodical MLC inspections.
