Narito po tayo ngayon sa Port Capinpin sa Orion, Bataan upang saksihan ang mangyayaring crew change operations sa area. Ito po ang kuna-unahang crew change operations na magaganap sa labas ng Metro Manila.

Kasama po natin sina Office for Transportation Security (OTS) Administrator Usec Raul Del Rosario, DOTr Assistant Secretary for Maritime Narciso Vingson, PCG Bataan Station Commander Larry Cendaña, MARINA-METSS Capt. Vicente Navarro, Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) Aurora/Bataan Port Manager Allan Rojo, BOQ Bataan Station Chief Dr. Emmanuel Sto. Domingo, at mga representatives ng Bureau of Immigration (BI) at ng Local Government Unit (LGU).

Importante po ang crew change upang masiguro ang kalusugan, kaligtasan, kapakanan at kabuhayan ng mga seafarers dahil sila ay maaari lamang magtagal sa isang vessel ng walang leave hanggang 11 months, ayon sa International Labour Organization (ILO) 2006 Maritime Labour Convention (MLC). Ito po ay makatutulong lalo na sa mga seafarers na na-stranded onboard sa mga barko na nag-expire na ang mga kontrata dahil sa mga travel restrictions na ipinatupad dahil sa COVID-19 pandemic.
