The Coast Guard has issued the final rules on the implementation of the STCW95 Code 2010 Manila Amendments, and 18 of the 20-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.
The Maritime Institute of Technology & Graduate Studies-Pacific Maritime Institute (MITAGS-PMI) has published a quick reference guide covering the implementation of the amendments and final rules. To view the guide, click here.
