The Isle of Man recognises certificates issued by a number of other countries for the issue of officer endorsements. The list of recognised countries is common throughout the Red Ensign Group.
In each case the Red Ensign Group 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 Red Ensign Group an undertaking is entered into with that country’s Administration and from that point the certificates from that country can be recognised.
The countries that are currently recognised for the issue of Isle of Man endorsements can be found in MSN 051.
