Medical Fitness and Medical Care

Medical Fitness and Medical Care

As a vessel owner or operator, you want to ensure that your crew has the highest standards of medical fitness and medical care. These processes are managed by the Medical Administraton Team, within Directorate of the UK Ship Register.

To ensure that every seafarer working on a UK ship is healthy and fit for work the UK has a statutory medical examination for seafarers. The UK statutory medical certificate is the ENG 1.  

The MCA also publishes regulations and guidance on the carriage of Medical Stores, Ship's DoctorsRadio Medical Advice for Seafarers and the Ship Captain's Medical Guide.
