C188 Work in Fishing Guide

This easy-to-use guide provides a summary of the key elements of the UK legislation on the International Convention on Work in Fishing (C188).

The guide has been produced by Merchant Navy Welfare Board (MNWB) in consultation with the Fishermen’s Mission, Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA), Nautilus International and the Fishing Industry Safety Group (FISG). Its aim is to inform and assist all those with an interest in commercial fishing, from vessel owners and skippers to crew from all nations and those in the maritime charitable sector who may be unfamiliar with fishing, to understand the legal welfare standards applicable to fishing vessels.


For more information on how to comply with ILO C188 please visit the home and dry commercial fishing safety campaign website www.homeanddry.uk
