STCW10 (Manila Convention) comes into force Jan 1 2017

Postby The Dieselduck » Mon Nov 09, 2015 10:16 am

There are significant and costly new requirements expected from Canadian Seafarers with the coming into force of the Manila Amendments to the STCW code (STCW2010). Transport Canada has released this bulletin, some of it is is represented here below, to inform us of the changes and the action you need to do in order to keep your CoC valid.

This bulletin explains the steps Owners, Masters, Officers and Seafarers must take before January 1, 2017, to comply with the new requirements of the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, as amended by the 2010 Manila conference (STCW Manila 2010).
Scope

This bulletin applies to Canadian seafarers and to holders of a Canadian STCW Certificate of Competency (CoC) or endorsement that expire before December 31st, 2016, who:

work on vessels making Unlimited voyages or Near Coastal, Class 1 (outside of the Great Lakes) voyages, and who must hold qualification documents that comply with STCW Manila 2010 by January 1, 2017.
work on vessels making Near Coastal, Class 1 (on the Great Lakes), Near Coastal, Class 2, or Sheltered Waters voyages who choose to comply with the STCW Manila 2010, although not required.

* We strongly encourage seafarers to apply now, to avoid a last minute rush that may occur at the end of 2016
Background

The STCW Manila 2010 came into force on January 1, 2012. A 5-year transition period is nearly over, which means Canada, as a party to the Convention, must fully comply with its requirements by January 1st, 2017. Major changes include:

Proof of Competency. A testimonial of participation in emergency drills onboard an STCW vessel will no longer be proof someone has the required level of competency. Seafarers must now complete an approved refresher training course at a Recognized Institution ashore every 5 years.

This applies in particular to competencies in Marine Emergency Duties (MED) as described below. If you are:

Listed on the safe manning document of an STCW vessel, you must demonstrate competence in STCW Basic Safety Training.
Assigned to launch a survival craft, you must demonstrate competence in Survival Craft and Rescue Boats.
In charge of a fire team, you must demonstrate competence in Advanced Fire Fighting.
Designated to provide first aid or medical care onboard an STCW vessel, you must demonstrate competence in First Aid or Medical Care.
The new Certificates of Proficiency (CoP) serve as proof a person has specific competencies that meet STCW Manila 2010 standards. For example, on January 1, 2017, all persons on STCW vessels who perform MED, must hold a CoP.

To obtain a CoP, you must apply at any Transport Canada Marine Safety and Security (TCMSS) Examination Center (http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/regions.htm) and provide a Training Certificate you earned from a Recognized Institution (see list in TP 10655) in the past 5 years, that relates to that CoP.

If you completed the Approved Training Courses more than 5 years ago, you must have completed an Approved Refresher Training Courses within the past 5 years. Other requirements may apply, as indicated elsewhere in this bulletin.
Certificates of Proficiency (CoP) in MED, First Aid and Medical Care

Annex A of this bulletin gives details about the trainings you must take at a Recognized Institution and any other requirements that may apply, to be able to apply for a CoP at a TCMSS Examination Center.
Certificates of Proficiency (CoP) for Tankers

After January 1, 2017, all documents issued to masters, deck officers, engineers and ratings working on a tanker making an Unlimited voyage or a Near Coastal, Class 1 (outside of the Great Lakes) voyage, that attest to their proficiency for tanker cargo operations, must comply with STCW Manila 2010. In Canada, seafarers must replace their current CoC or endorsements with a corresponding CoP.
Ratings (Tankers)

Before January 1, 2017, Ratings working on STCW vessels must exchange their current CoC or endorsement at any TCMSS examination center. Ratings will receive a corresponding new CoP, issued with no expiry date, either:

Basic Training for Oil and Chemical Tanker Cargo Operations, or
Basic Training for Liquefied Gas Tanker Cargo Operations.

Masters and Officers (Deck and Engine room - Tankers)

Masters, engineers and deck officers holding a familiarization or specialized CoC or endorsement for any type of tanker making an STCW voyage, must exchange their CoC or endorsement, before January 1, 2017, for one of the following Certificates of Proficiency (CoP) that complies with STCW Manila 2010:

Basic Training for Oil and Chemical Tanker Cargo Operations,
Basic Training for Liquefied Gas Tanker Cargo Operations,
Advanced Training for Oil Tanker Cargo Operations,
Advanced Training for Chemical Tanker Cargo Operations, or
Advanced Training for Liquefied Gas Tanker Cargo Operations.

Passenger vessels training and qualifications

While there is no immediate change to the qualifications required for personnel on passenger vessels and ro-ro passenger vessels, the MPR are being amended to reflect STCW Manila 2010 requirements. These amendments should apply starting January 1, 2017.

The main changes will be that the MPR:

will no longer require personnel to hold the Passenger Safety Management and Specialized Passenger Safety Management (Ro-Ro Vessels) CoC and endorsement TCMSS currently issues.
will require personnel earn a training certificate issued by the recognized institution as proof they are qualified in the topic indicated for service on a passenger vessel. Certain topics will require refresher training every 5 years.

Notes:

The Passenger Safety Management and Specialized Passenger Safety Management (Ro-Ro Vessels) CoC and endorsements seafarers currently hold, remain valid until their expiry date, and can be renewed in compliance with the MPR until December, 31st 2016.
Starting January 1, 2017, TCMSS will not issue or renew these CoC or endorsements, but will require personnel on passenger vessels and Ro-Ro passenger vessels to hold training certificates as indicated in Annex B.
Annex B details required training or refresher training starting January 1, 2017.
Recognized institutions giving the Passenger Safety Management or the Specialized Passenger Safety Management (Ro-Ro Vessels) training remain approved to issue training certificates indicated in Annex B, as long as they comply with approval conditions.

Availability of refresher training courses

Recognized Institutions and TCMSS are working on establishing and approving refresher training courses. In fact, many are already available. Seafarers who must take refresher training should contact a Recognized Institution to register. We strongly encourage seafarers to apply now, to avoid a last minute rush that may occur at the end of 2016.
Certificates of Competency (CoC) or endorsements expiring on December 31, 2016

Most STCW CoCs or endorsements TCMSS issued in the past months expire on December 31, 2016.

If you hold an STCW CoC or endorsement expiring on December 31, 2016, you may exchange it for an STCW Manila 2010 CoC or CoP, as applicable, valid for the remaining time of the initial 5 years period, at any TCMSS Examination Center – at no cost.
If you want to renew an officer’s CoC for a full 5 year period, you must comply with the renewal requirements of MPR sections 106 or 107 and pay the renewal fee, to receive an STCW Manila 2010 CoC valid for 5 years.
If you want to renew a tanker endorsement for a full 5 year period, you must comply with the renewal requirements of MPR sections 159, 160 or 165 to 167 as applicable and pay the renewal fee, to receive an STCW Manila 2010 CoP valid for 5 years.

Certificates of competency issued to ratings without an expiry date

Ratings who hold CoC issued without an expiry date, such as Bridge Watch Rating and Engine Room Rating, do not have references that meet STCW Manila 2010 standards, and may apply at any TCMSS Examination Center to get a replacement at no cost.
TCMSS Policy

While waiting for the MPR amendments to come into force, TCMSS has begun to issue CoPs to seafarers who want to comply with the new STCW Manila 2010 requirements.

While there is no legal requirement to take a refresher training course until these amendments do come into force, we encourage Canadian seafarers to obtain the STCW Manila 2010 compliant documents well before January 1, 2017 to avoid problems at foreign ports for not holding the necessary documents.
Sheltered Waters, Near Coastal, Class 2 and Near Coastal, Class 1(on the Great-Lakes) Voyages

There is no immediate change for personnel working on domestic vessels making voyages in Sheltered Waters, in Near Coastal, Class 2 or in Near Coastal, Class 1 (on the Great Lakes). This means that Officers holding:

Domestic certificates of competency do not have to take any particular steps.
STCW certificates, will receive an STCW Manila 2010 certificate when they meet the MPR renewal requirements.

Certificates of Proficiency in MED will not be required on domestic vessels making voyages in Sheltered Waters, in Near Coastal, Class 2 or in Near Coastal, Class 1 (on the Great Lakes). For these vessels, the current training and certification requirements of MPR sections 205 to 210 remain. Holding one of the MPR accepted training certificates issued by a recognized institution is valid for personnel who:

form part of the safe manning of the vessel
are assigned to a survival craft team or a fire team.

You know I have a tough time believing that the training requirements in Canada and the associated cost will be similar to those of the majority of the third world sailors will face. Over complicating things and making it harder to feed my family seems to be a Transport Canada objective.

The STCW 10 requirements will not be enforced until the Marine Personnel Regulations are published in Gazzette 11 and that won't happen this year.

It should be noted, too, that TC recognises training certificates from other STCW compliant countries with flag approved courses. Might be worthwhile taking a wee vacation in one of these STCW compliant countries, just make sure the course is approved by that flag. I know that a lot of chancers, fan dancers, cowboys and comic singers set up a "Marine College" and hand out certificates for courses which are not approved. These certificates are usually printed on paper too hard to wipe your arse, so are totally useless.

It should be noted that STCW only applies 25 miles off the east coast on NC1 or unlimited voyages. It does not apply in the Lakes or on the west coast, unless the voyage is unlimited.

It just creates a zone restricted license system aligning engineers licenses with similar zone restrictions as are currently in force and have been for many years on the deck licenses.

TC just issued another Ship Safety Bulletin on TCW2010 compliance, specifically for Marine Engineers.

SSB-05-2017E.pdf
(1018.84 KiB) Downloaded 28 times



The text is here, below.

Purpose

This bulletin adds information to the Ship Safety Bulletin #09/2015. It explains how officers and seafarers of the engine department can comply with the new requirements of the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, as amended by the 2010 Manila Conference (STCW 2010 Manila) after December 31, 2016.

Guidance for Master, Deck Officers and Deck Ratings is published in bulletin #12/2016.

Scope

This bulletin details guidelines on the:

status on the validity of Certificates of Competency (CoC) issued under the current MPR (2007);
conditions to obtain a CoC that meets the STCW Manila 2010 (CoC-STCW 2010) requirements;
requirements to obtain a Certificate of Proficiency (CoP) for service onboard vessels using Steam for propulsion or with High Voltage (1000v) systems;
current status of the Passenger and RoRo Passenger vessels’ personnel certification; and
requirements for Marine Emergency Duties (MED) refresher training.

Application

The STCW 2010 Manila does not apply to fishing vessels. Officers and seafarers of the engine department working onboard fishing vessels are not required, at this time, to complete MED refresher training, unless they do not have enough sea service to meet the renewal requirements for their CoC, as set in section 107 of the Marine Personnel Regulations (MPR).
Background

The STCW 2010 Manila came into force on January 1, 2012. The Convention’s transition period is scheduled to end on December 31, 2016. This means Canada, as a party to the STCW 2010 Manila, must fully comply with its requirements by January 1, 2017.

Transport Canada Marine Safety and Security (TCMSS) has submitted a number of amendments to modernize the current MPR. Until these amendments come into force, TCMSS has developed interim measures to achieve STCW 2010 Manila compliance.

Details of these interim measures are listed in the Annexes of this bulletin.
Status of Certificates of Competency issued under the current MPR (2007)

TCMSS considers the current holders of Canadian CoC as 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th Class Engineer or ERR, who have maintained their competency as set out in section 107 of the current MPR, as meeting the requirements of the STCW 2010 requirements.

Such CoCs shall be renewed, before their expiry date, as set out in section 107 of the MPR, and taking into consideration the information published in Ship Safety Bulletin #09/2015.
Conditions to obtain a Certificate of Competency that meets the requirements of the STCW 2010

After December 31, 2016:

A seafarer who wishes to obtain a CoC that meets STCW 2010 (“CoC-STCW 2010”) requirements must meet the respective conditions set out in Annexes 1 to 4 of this bulletin.
Holders of a training certificate, for an approved engineering education and training program issued for a program that started before 2008, who have not yet obtained a CoC, must fully comply with all STCW 2010 Manila requirements.

Requirements to obtain a Certificate of Proficiency for service on board vessels equipped with steam propulsion machinery or a high voltage system.

After December 31, 2016:

A seafarer who wishes to obtain a CoP for service on board vessels equipped with Steam propulsion machinery or vessels equipped with High Voltage (1000v) system must meet the respective conditions set out in Annex 4 of this bulletin.

Requirements to obtain a Passenger Vessel Management (PSM) or a Specialized Passenger Safety Management – RoRo Vessels (PSM-RoRo)

Contrary to information in Ship Safety Bulletin #09/2015, the current MPR regime for the certification of seafarers on passenger vessels will continue to apply after December 31, 2016, and until further notice.

TCMSS will continue to:

require the Passenger Vessel Management (PSM) and Specialized Passenger Safety Management – RoRo Vessels (PSM-RoRo) CoC and endorsement, under sections 229 and 230 of the current MPR; and
issue them under sections 109, 157 and 158 of the current MPR.

MED Refresher Training Requirements

At this time, officers and seafarers of the engine department are not required, even after December 31, 2016, to take Marine Emergency Duties (MED) refresher training, or to obtain a CoP for this training, when sailing on a vessel making a:

Voyage in Sheltered waters;
Near Coastal, Class 2 voyage;
Near Coastal, Class 1 voyage on the Great Lakes;
Voyage in the waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence and Cabot Strait, up to 25 nm seaward of a straight line joining Cape Canso at 45° 18.36’N, 60° 56.28’W and Cape Pine at 46° 36.81’N, 53° 32.5’W (see Annex 5) or
Voyage in the areas of Queen Charlotte Sound and Hecate Strait, up to 25 nm seaward of a straight line joining Winifred Island at 50° 39’ 40” N, 128° 22’ 00” W, and Kunghit Island at 51° 56’ 37” N, 131° 01’ 52” W. (see Annex 6)

Within these waters, the current MPR regime remains in force.

After December 31, 2016, the STCW 2010 Manila requires seafarers assigned on the muster list to MED duties and all officers on board a vessel making a voyage outside of the limits listed above, to take refresher trainings every 5 years and to hold a CoP in the related MED duties.

As outlined in SSB #09/2015, a seafarer wishing to obtain a CoC-STCW 2010 after December 31, 2016, must hold the required MED CoPs.

The renewal of a CoC is independent of the validity of the CoP for MED, unless a person does not have the required sea service, as section 107 of the MPR.
Service Standards

Officers and seafarers of the engine department wishing to obtain a CoC-STCW 2010 should expect a service standard of up to 120 business days before receiving a plasticised “STCW 2010 CoC”.

Transport Canada encourages officers and seafarers of the engine department to inform the examiner, at the time of their application, of any urgency related to an eventual engagement on board a vessel making a voyage outside the limits of Near Coastal Class 1 voyage.

Has anyone actually read this yet?!

Update on how to meet STCW 2010 Manila Convention Requirements for Officers and Ratings of the Engine Department - SSB No.: 05/2017
http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/marinesafety/bu%20...%2005-eng.htm

-I'm not sure if I'm interpreting it correctly, but it appears that 1st and 2nd class tickets are now pretty much the same.

-There will be no more TC exams.

-If you graduate from a 3 year program you can have a "Chief's Ticket" with 36 months sea time and no further exams.

-Basically anyone who does a 3 year cadet program

You can be Chief Engineer on any ship that's near coastal or inland, three months after graduating school!

I can't believe a wasted so much time and effort writing my fucking 1st Class. It was all for nothing.

What's depressing is...you very well may be right Sea Rover...
If it's going to be a breeze to sail as chief...will you get paid accordingly? Will they hire and pay a proper Chief, or will they hire a chief cadet and pay them accordingly?

You still have to pass Management Level exams, (1st Class standard) These will be done by the colleges after a suitable block credit course, if any given college gets enough candidates together for the time needed to justify the expense of putting the course on. In NS anyway, Block Credit courses are on a "cost recovery" basis. Unless enough people sign up for and pay for it to cover the total cost of putting it on, the course will be cancelled.
