The Seafarers Act Amendment Act (667 SE) was passed by the Riigikogu with 73 votes in favour. The purpose of the Act is to extend the control zone of the Labour Inspectorate and the Health Protection Inspectorate. The Inspectorates will perform supervisory operations on ships: find out possible illegal labour relations, strengthen the protection of the rights of the members of the crew, improve the safety of the work environment.
