Recognised Countries

The Isle of Man recognises certificates issued by a number of other countries for the issue of officer endorsements.

In each case the Isle of Man Ship Registry must evaluate the systems and procedures in place in that country, almost always by making a visit to assess training facilities, procedures and the operation of the Administration locally. When the standards applied in any country are found to be acceptable to the Isle of Man Ship Registry an undertaking is entered into with that country’s Administration and from that point the certificates from that country can be recognised.
