SAFETY4SEA provides a detailed explanation of the terms included in the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, for the better understanding of the Convention.
In 1978, IMO adopted a landmark Convention for all seafarers across the world to establish high standards of competence and professionalism in their duties on-board. The International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, the STCW Convention in brief, establishes the minimum basic requirements on training, certification and watchkeeping for seafarers on an international level.
The UK MCA issued an updated marine guidance note on alcohol limits for seafarers onboard UK vessels worldwide and for vessels operating in UK waters, under STCW. The new limit for blood is 0.05% or 50 milligram in 100 milliliters and the new limit for breath is 0.25 milligrams per liter of 25 micrograms in 100 milliliters.
The Republic of Liberia has issued advisory in order to provide additional information and guidance to Shipowners, Operators and Masters concerning a revision to the Administration’s Minimum Safe Manning Document to accommodate the entry into force amendments to the STCW Convention.
