Viking Recruitment has been working closely in partnership with Polar Latitudes to ensure they are Fully MLC 2006 compliant for their operation.

There first expedition was a complete success, travelling from the Falklands to Antarctica via Puerto Madryn. The 21 day expedition and voyages since have passed successfully.

The Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) is an International Labour Organization convention established in 2006 as the fourth pillar of international maritime law and embodies "all up-to-date standards of existing international maritime labour Conventions and Recommendations, as well as the fundamental principles to be found in other international labour Conventions". The other "pillars are theSOLAS, STCW and MARPOL. The treaties applies to all ships entering the harbours of parties to the treaty (port states), as well as to all states flying the flag of state party (flag states, as of 2013: 50 per cent).

The convention entered into force on 20 August 2013, one year after registering 30 ratifications of countries representing over 33 per cent of the world gross tonnage of ships. Already after five ratifications the ratifying countries (Bahamas, Norway, Liberia, Marshall Islands, and Panama) represented over 43 per cent of the gross world tonnage (which is over 33 per cent; the second requirement for entry into force). As of October 2015, the convention has been ratified by 67 states representing 80 per cent of global shipping.
