STCW 2010 Transitional Provisions

The full text of the revised Convention and Code can be found on the IMO website.

Transitional Provisions

Although the new regulations come into effect on 1 January 2012, there are two transitional arrangements concerning certification issued under previous Convention requirements:

“Until 1 January 2017, a Party may continue to issue, recognize and endorse certificates in accordance with the provisions of the Convention which applied immediately prior to 1 January 2012 in respect of those seafarers who commenced approved seagoing service, an approved education and training programme or an approved training course before 1 July 2013.

Until 1 January 2017, a Party may continue to renew and revalidate certificates and endorsements in accordance with the provisions of the Convention which applied immediately prior to 1 January 2012.”
