All seafarers serving on board foreign flagged ships must have their national certificates of competency endorsed for recognition by the foreign flag administration.

The foreign flag administration shall issue an endorsement attesting the recognition of a certificate issued under the provisions of the STCW Convention.

Some foreign flag administrations also require endorsement of Ship Security Officer as well as Oil, Chemical & Gas Tanker Operations certificates of competency. Please contact us for further information.

For ratings and other crew members a Continuous Discharge Certificate (CDC) or Seaman's Discharge Book is normally required.

We handle applications for Certificates of Endorsement / Recognition Certificates in Panama - Belize - and Honduras.
