We need CREW CHANGE-Sign the Petition NOW!
Target: Member States – IMO
In relation to the deteriorating wellbeing of seafarers which are stuck onboard ships and seafarers currently at home due to the impossibility to make arrangements for crew replacements leading to seriously endangered safety and security of international shipping, and also in view of securing uninterruptedness of the global supply chains, we, the undersigned, Insist that member states of the International Maritime Organization and International Labour Organization to:
2. Ensure free access and movement of seafarers to and from the ships, as well as for persons employed in shipping-related activities.
3. Permit a sufficient number of airplane flights related to embarkation and repatriation of seafaring personnel and movement of maritime transport specialists.
4. International Maritime Organization and the International Labour Organization member-states should develop and implement a unified simplified plan for realization of the above measures as soon as possible.
5. Not subject the seafarers to mandatory quarantine upon debarkation from ships where it is possible to promptly make COVID-19 tests and the test results are negative.
