1. Following on from Marine Notice 14. The Australian Maritime Safety Authority [AMSA] and Maritime New Zealand [MNZ] have both agreed to recognize Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji [MSAF] approved STCW short courses for revalidation of Certificates of Competencies. MSAF in return will do the same.
  2. This will be formalised in new Memorandums of Understanding [MOU] and allow our higher certified seafarers the ability to revalidate locally due to travel restrictions. The courses are available for other international candidates who are in the pacific region.
  3. MSAF will continue to seek out other flag state administrations for dual recognition of COC’s and medical certificates.
  4. MSAF appreciates the prompt response from AMSA & MNZ to assist seafarer’s during these times.
