STCW 2010 (Manila Amendments)


The key to maintaining a safe shipping environment and keeping our oceans clean lies in all seafarers across the world observing high standards of competence and professionalism in the duties they perform on-board. The International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers 1978, as amended in 1995 and again in 2010, sets those standards, governs the award of certificates and controls watchkeeping arrangements . Its provisions not only apply to seafarers, but also to ship-owners, training establishments and national maritime administrations.

To all who are qualified a certificate is issued certifying that a trainee has acquired awareness related to STCW 2010.
