Observations and Recommendations on The Draft Ministerial Regulation Concerning Labour Protection in Sea Fishery Work B.E....

The Ministry of Labour plans to revise the Ministerial Regulation concerning Labour Protection in Sea Fishery Work B.E.2557 (2014) and its amendment no. 2 in 2018, as they identify gaps and areas that are still incompatible with the employment and working conditions onboard fishing vessels. This amendment is brought about to ensure that labour law concerning fishery workers and the labour protection standard are on par with international standards in order to enhance Thailand’s capability to combat human trafficking and illegal labour in fisheries. Hence, the Draft Ministerial Regulation concerning Labour Protection in Sea Fishery Work B.E.... introduced.
