The MCA have launched a review questionnaire on the current STCW requirements. The Chamber is assisting by promulgating the survey to relevant stakeholders and encouraging the further dissemination to crews.

The purpose of this questionnaire is to engage with industry professionals, especially serving seafarers about the current STCW mandatory training requirement and its importance for today’s seafarers. This is to ensure that seafarers can receive/maintain the level of knowledge, understanding, professional competence and performance standard suitable and relevant to today’s industry and ever improving technical needs.

Three questionnaires exist covering Deck, Engine and Electro-Techincal qualifications available via the following links:

The questionnaire allows for information to be provided ANONYMOUSLY and the MCA plan close these surveys approx. 15 January, 2020 with some flexibility dependent on number of completed feedbacks received.

Please assist in ensuring wide and complete response.
