Revised Consultation of Marine Order 3—Seafarer Certification

Tuesday 30 July 2013

Marine Order 3—Seafarer Certification (MO3) is the key piece of regulation under the Navigation Act 2012 that sets the Australian Maritime Safety Authority’s (AMSA) training and certification standards for seafarers to work on Australian ships.

It provides the framework for:

  • training and qualification
  • revalidation and endorsement of Certificates of competency for masters, deck and engineer officers
  • Certificates of proficiency for ratings
  • Certificates of recognition for certificates issued by foreign countries.

AMSA is seeking feedback on a revised consultation draft MO3 (version 2) which addresses issues and concerns raised during the previous consultation period in 2011-12. Feedback is required by Wednesday 28 August 2013.
