MIN 611 Amendment 2


This notice replaces MIN 611 (M) Amendment 1.

The MCA has put in place contingency plans to mitigate disruption to essential delivered services due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. This has allowed the MCA to continue to issue or extend UK Certificates of Competency (CoC), UK Flag State Endorsements (FSE) and UK Certificates of Proficiency (CoP).

In order to allow us to best follow these plans, we request that all seafarers in the process of applying to the MCA for UK certification follow the guidance contained within this MIN.

Notice to all Shipowners, Masters, Officers and all those concerned with seafarer training and expires 31 December 2021.
