Temporary crewing permits
You may be able to operate temporarily below the minimum crewing requirements that apply to the vessel.
Temporary crewing permits may be issued for up to three months.
In applying for a temporary crewing permit, you must:
- specify the period for which the temporary crewing permit is required
- demonstrate how the vessel will be operated safety with less than the minimum crewing that would otherwise apply to the vessel
- include a statement as to why the minimum crewing that would otherwise apply is impracticable, or would cause unreasonable or unnecessary expense.
