Re: Chief MODU STCW95
STCW is usually what each country crosses over. They can care less about what the MMC says if it doesn't have code A-III/2 on his STCW. Tell him to get with NMC to get A-III/2 restricted to MODU's endorsed on his STCW.

Flag states generally do not care one iota of the restriction as long as that code is on the STCW. Once that is resolved an application can be made with Singapore, you can request a CRA "certificate of receipt of application" and he will be good for 90 days. legally, while the application is being processed.
