BREXIT : What impacts for the seafarers ?

16/06/2021

Shipping Law

Following the ratification by the European Parliament of the treaty on its withdrawal, the United Kingdom officially left the European Union on February 1, 2020. It is also considered a third country to the European Union since December 31, 2020, at the end of the transition period. Relations between the United Kingdom and the European Union are now partly governed by the Trade and Cooperation Agreement, signed in extremis between the two states.

While the consequences of the Brexit, particularly in terms of customs, have been widely commented on and discussed, they have been much less so in terms of the employment conditions of seafarers. What are the concrete consequences in terms of employment, nationality quotas on board, work permits, professional recognition of qualifications and certificates? Are they of the same magnitude depending on whether the seafarers sail in the commercial or yachting sector? What are the consequences for affiliation to a social security system?

Frédérique Heurtel, lawyer at Stream, and Anne-Cécile Bannier-Mathieu, founder of Argos Consulting, have examined these different issues for Jeune Marine, and answer them in an article devoted to the impacts of Brexit for seafarers.
