IMO agrees amendments to STCW

05 Jul 2010

At the recently concluded IMO diplomatic conference held in Manila, Philippines, the amendments to the International Convention and Code on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW), were agreed.

The Conference marked the first major revision to STCW since 1995, when the original 1978-Convention was completely revised. There was a need to harmonise STCW requirements on rest hours with the requirements of the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 (MLC, 2006), expected to enter into force in 2011.
