Marine Notice No. 67 of 2013

 

 

Notice To All Ship Owners, Managers, Agents, Masters, Seafarers, Approved Doctors, Medical Referees And Training Establishments

 

Amended Seafarer Medical Certificate - Form 3 (ENG11)

from 1 January 2014

 

 

 

 

 

The Merchant Shipping (Medical Examinations) Regulations 2005 (S.I. No. 701 of 2005) make it a legal requirement for any seafarer, as defined in the Regulations, to hold a valid certificate attesting to their medical fitness for the work for which they are employed. Details of the Seafarers Medical Assessment Scheme are contained in Marine Notice No. 30 of 2005 .

 

The Manila Amendments to the International Convention and Code on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) were adopted on 25 June 2010 and entered into force on 1 January 2012.

 

The Manila Amendments necessitated a redesign of the Seafarer Medical Certificate Form 3 (ENG11) to incorporate additional information on a seafarer’s medical fitness. The revised medical certificate was introduced on 1 January 2013.

 

Following a review of the medical certificate the Department has decided to make a number of amendments. The amended certificates will be issued by Approved Doctors from 1 January 2014 .

 

The current version of the Seafarers Medical Certificate Form 3 will continue to be issued by Approved Doctors up to 31 December 2013.

 

All certificates currently in the possession of seafarers will remain valid until their expiry date.
