[DRAFT] Standards for Moving

Postby Barbaria » Thu Nov 24, 2022 11:20 am

Standards for Moving
Regulation/Safety: Strong?
Proposed by: Barbaria


The World Assembly,

Noticing a lack of required regulation in certain countries for moving on an international level,

The World Assembly hereby:

  1. Defines "moving" as a part in the process of one switching their residence by free will, which involves transporting some of the customer's belongings to a specified destination.
  2. Defines a "moving company" as the main company that assist with a group's moving.
  3. Defines a "customer", only for this resolution, as who the moving company serves and transports their belongings to a new destination.
  4. Creates the International Community's Body of Moving, which shall also be known as the ICBM.
  5. Mandates that all moving companies make certain details about known to their national government, and mandates that the ICBM has the right to view these important details. The details that must be known include:
    1. The location where the moving company will load some of the customer's property, which must be near the customer's old residence or old storage units,
    2. The location where the moving company will drop off all of the customer's property, which must be near the customer's new residence or
      new storage units,
    3. Who and what company will move the customer's belongings,
    4. The space inside the vessel that shall move the customer's property that was legally reserved for said customer's belongings,
    5. The rate at which the moving company shall charge the customer, and
    6. Time units in minutes which show when all significant actions taken by the mover and moving company happened, which must include the time units of when all other required details of Clause V happened, when the mover exited the moving vessel or stopped driving for a significant amount of time voluntarily, and anything else that is deemed important and mandatory by national governments.
  6. Demands that moving companies follow the charge rate, and exclude times where the vessel used for the move was idle from the charge rate.
  7. Mandates that moving vessels must not operate when there is an insufficient amount of natural light.
  8. Requires that moving vessels operate for at most 10 hours per day, with the mover taking at least a 30 minute break after 5 hours of the vessel's operation, and the vessel stays unoperational and the mover rests after the 10 hours, for safety.
  9. Allows the ICBM to order national government to punish moving companies who fake the information they published for Articles V and VI according to the nation's national law, and mandates nations carry out the consequence.
  10. Encourages national governments to continue legislating about moving and requirements for moving companies and/or customers.

Why does the ICBM exist if it has no responsibilities other than to review Article v records?

Oh, yeah. I forgot to make the ICBM enforce Article V records. Will do it now, thanks.

Once again my brain forgot to put something. Whoops! :p

Time is illegal to measure in seconds or minutes, though.

How would you like it if I sold you a truck that looks like it has 12 square meters in space but, in the inside, only has 11.5?

A big problem for moving customers today.

Why? Many proposals talk about how many months or years it will take to do something.

OOC: ICBM is a terrible name for a committee.

IC: "Yet more pointless micromanagement from the World's Assembly. This isn't an international issue. Opposed."
"Quotes" indicate IC. OOC otherwise.

For your OOC post, but it's a great acronym! Who wouldn't want to be subject to regulation by an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile - I mean, the International Community's Body of Moving?

As for your IC post, we understand that you believe that this is not an international issue. However, we believe that it is, and will continue to attempt to make this necessary proposal one step closer to being a resolution.

When moving on an international level I have also noticed that a lack of standards is required.

We all make mistakes, but I wonder if some people make them too often.

Fixed.

Certain nations make their workers, which includes movers, work non-stop, and also allows movers to charge their clients however they want.

I'm more confused now. Is this supposed to cover moves within one nation or just international moves?

Barbaria wrote:Certain nations make their workers, which includes movers, work non-stop, and also allows movers to charge their clients however they want.

In that case see what resolutions exist on workers' rights and see if improvements are needed. That might genuinely be an international issue in terms of universal rights. Why handle that one business at a time? Are we expecting further resolutions on plumbers, postal workers, farm labourers etc etc?

And so what if movers overcharge? You'll need to explain why market forces don't sufficiently discourage this already, think about what might already be in place to cover the situation where price fixing or cartel behaviour prevent that discouragement, and as above ask why you're only tacking this in a single small business activity.

Hmm. Good point. I might have to make a second draft soon, which includes some freedoms and regulations for international moves.

You have a great point once again. I'm not going to include all of those businesses in my resolution, but there should be a resolution about a worker's undeniable rights.

And so what if movers overcharge? You'll need to explain why market forces don't sufficiently discourage this already, think about what might already be in place to cover the situation where price fixing or cartel behaviour prevent that discouragement, and as above ask why you're only tacking this in a single small business activity.


Great point once more.
