Consultation on STCW Regulations

The Isle of Man Ship Registry is consulting on Regulations to update the Ship Registry’s existing Merchant Shipping (Manning & STCW) Regulations to give effect to the latest amendments to the STCW Convention. The latest amendments are for training and certification for seafarers working on ships subject to the IGF Code, ships operating in Polar waters and additional training for seafarers working on passenger ships. We are also proposing to correct an omission in the existing Regulations by including specific provisions for the withdrawal, suspension or cancellation of a seafarer’s Isle of Man endorsement.

We welcome any feedback you many have, however please be aware the Consultation will close on 21 September 2020.
