Most of the seafarers are doing service on foreign flag vessels.
As a general rule the seafarer must know and comply with flag state law.
The main question is:
Is above sentence refering to flag state maritime law or to common law as well.
Is there any international reglementation on subject?

In general seafarers need to follow ILO and IMO regulations which applies to all flag state ship. ILO covers the well being of the seafarers and IMO their safety. In addition, there is also requirements for some flag states which generally supplements the ILO and IMO rules.

Sorry to tell the answer is not responding my query.ILO (MLC) as well IMO reg are considered part of maritime law. My query refered to seafarer obligation to know flag state common law which has no connection with maritime sector (ie.flag state fiscal code, flag state civil code,etc.etc). If answer is yes, my next question is How can a seafarer have knowledge of such vast legislation which is mostly written in local language?

Ok. Now it's clearer. Seafarers are not required to know the common law of the flag state.
