Memorandum of understanding with Sonic HealthPlus

We have a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Sonic HealthPlus.

Our MOU with Sonic HealthPlus (SHP) helps us provide medical examination of seafarers.

Seafarers can only get a Certificate of medical fitness through SHP who arrange an appointment with a Medical Inspector of Seafarers (MIS).

Under the MOU, SHP offers the following services to AMSA:

  • Recommendation and administration of the appointment of MIS.
  • Delivery of training, guidance and expert advice to MIS regarding the occupational demands of the marine working environment.
  • Coordination, provision and administration of medical assessment of seafarers and coastal pilots by appointed MIS.
  • Provision of related documentation and reports to us.
