Abstract: 

In article questions of international legal regulation of work of seamen are considered, activities of the International Labour Organization for preparation of standards in the field of protection of the rights of workers are lit. This organization made an essential contribution to development of standards in the sphere of a labor activity of the seamen on questions concerning special working conditions, and also protection of the rights of this employee category. The author analysed provisions of the Convention on work in sea navigation of 2006 which replaced with itself the existing sea conventions of the ILO and the related recommendations. She establishes the minimum international requirements concerning almost all aspects of working conditions and accommodation of seamen on the vessel: the minimum age, suitability for health reasons, professional training, terms of employment, including the rights concerning compensation, a paid annual leave, repatriation, duration of operating time and rest. In the course of scientific research the author comes to a conclusion that the Convention on work accepted in 2006 in sea navigation considerably simplifies the procedure of regulation of employment relationships on ocean ships owing to high extent of standardization of its precepts of law having comprehensive character and also their consolidation in the single document.
