    Default STCW Manila Amendments

    Can anyone tell me where we can get a copy of the STCW Manila Amendments? They will have a big impact on our training programs

    IMO indicated " The new STCW including the Manila amendments will not be printed until March next year. I am not sure if the information is available for free, I recommend you try your National Maritime Administration to see if they have it available.

    Don't know where to find a copy, I have only seen a summary, but I do wonder if they will be mailed out in Manila envelopes when the do become available?

    I will try to track down the summary info when I get a chance.
    The time for taking all measures for a ship's safety is while still able to do so. Nothing is more dangerous than for a seaman to be grudging in taking precautions lest they turn out to have been unnecessary. Safety at sea for a thousand years has depended on exactly the opposite philosophy.

    Good question. I had a draft copy of the requirements for the ice pilotage portion. If that interest you, I'm sure I can find them somewhere.

    Thanks, the big problem is the requirements for schools to have a QSS plan in place.

    However, there are some exception. At a price tag around $20,000 a plan we need to see just who is covered.

    The QSS requirements are in the 95 amendments.

    Agreed. I want to see what changes may have been made if any. There have been comments from other schools that it now would include everything from OUPV and Master 100 ton to advance basket weaving.(not my comment). After reviewing the proposed cfr changes last year it appeared the lower level license are not covered under stcw. However, new amendments mean different points of view.
