During this time of uncertainty that has been caused by COVID-19, and in line with the advice from the International Maritime Organization (IMO), we have taken a pragmatic approach to seafarer certification.

We have just published Marine notice 2/2020-Extension of standards of training certification and watchkeeping certificates

The purpose of this marine notice is to advise flag States, port States, vessel owners, operators, licenced pilots, masters and crews about steps we have taken to extend the duration of some certificates.
