Can I work on British Flag Vessels with a Certificate Issued by Another Country?
Yes, the MCA recognises STCW95 endorsed tickets from other countries. You should check the MCA website (www.mcga.gov.uk/c4mca/mega07-home/workingatsea/mega-trainingandcert/mcga-ds-stc-applink.html) for an updated list. The MCA should issue a Certificate of Equivalent Competency (CEC) with the same limitations as the original certificate.
How do I apply for a CEC?
You need to download form MSF4203 from the MCA website. Complete the form and include the following documents:
- Completed application form
- Non-UK Certificate of Competency
- GMDSS certificate (Deck officers only)
- Passport or discharge book
- Evidence of competency in English language
- Two passport size photographs
