MITAGS-PMI Helps interpret STCW Manila Amendments

By MarEx 2014-06-27 13:36:00

The Coast Guard has issued the Final Rules on the Implementation of the STCW95 Code 2010 Manila Amendments, and 18 of the twenty plus Navigation Vessel Inspection Circulars (NVICS). In addition, there are other related regulations and policies that impact mariners. Although the final rule affects all U.S. mariners, most of the changes are focused on mariners sailing on near coastal and foreign voyages. 

We have done our best to interpret these regulations and create a Quick Reference Guide.
