STCW 2010 Grace Period

Further to our previous article on STCW Refresher Training, the IMO have recently released an advisory note recommending a grace period until 1st July 2017.

Port State Control (and other maritime administrations) are asked to take a ‘pragmatic and practical approach’ if a crew member held correct STCW certification as at 31st December 2016 but has not been able to get on an STCW updated course in time.

For more detailed information please see the full article.

We strongly recommend that all Captains, Officers and Crew make early plans to ensure qualifications are renewed before the 1st July 2017 deadline.
