Purpose: The purpose of this study is to examine the necessity of the Indonesian government to establish a national legal framework and inspection mechanism based on Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) by emphasising its role as a flag state, a coastal state, a labour supplier state, and a port state.
Design/methodology/approach: This is doctrinal research that applies a system-structural analysis by identifying, selecting, and synthesising all relevant sources, data, and provisions on the intended topic.
Findings: After MLC was ratified through Law No. 15/2016, some technical provisions passed as mandated by the law. However, even now in 2021, insufficient comprehensive technical regulation for conducting standard inspection assessments hinders national maritime industry compliance. As a temporary measure in 2020, the authority relied on co-operation and assistance from another state/institution to conduct the assessment.
Originality/value: This paper was based on the research carried out in 2020-2021 and has not been published in any journal.
