1. Eyesight test certificate
The Eyesight test certificate form 542 lets us know that your eyesight meets the necessary standard for working at sea.
If you are colour blind, you will be restricted to working in daylight hours only.
2. Guidelines for the medical assessment of near coastal seafarers.
Provide the medical practitioner with the Guidelines for the medical assessment of near coastal seafarers.
If you have a current AMSA medical (Certificate of medical fitness form 303) you can use this in place of the Eyesight test certificate.
You must submit your completed form as part of your Certificate of competency application form 426.
Within the Certificate of competency application there is a declaration of medical fitness that you must complete. This lets us know that you are medically fit to work at sea.
