Revalidation of Singapore Certificate of Competency

June 26, 2014

 

Holders of Singapore issued certificates of competency (CoCs) [are reminded] of the requirements to revalidate their CoCs meeting the requirements of 2010 Manila amendments to the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW).

Currently, CoCs have been issued by Singapore in compliance with 1995 amendments to the STCW Convention and are validated up to 31 December 2016.

Holders of existing CoCs would be required to attend additional courses to comply with competency requirements of the 2010 Manila amendments to STCW....

Holders of CoC are advised to take notice of Shipping Circular 13 of 2013 for the medical examination and certifications....  ....MPA would commence revalidating existing CoCs to be valid beyond 31 Dec 2016 from 1 Sep 2014.

In order to avoid an expected rush of applications for revalidation immediately  prior to 1 January 2017, affected holders of CoCs are strongly advised to complete the appropriate training courses and apply for revalidation from 1 Sep 2014.

Application for revalidation should be made online at MPA's website http://www.mpa.gov.sg
