Manila Conference


Conference in Manila  21 s/d 25 Juni 2010: 


Entry into force of June 2010 Manila amendments to STCW Major revisions to the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (the STCW Convention), and its associated Code adopted at a Diplomatic Conference in Manila, the Philippines, held from 21 to 25 June 2010. “The Manila amendments to the STCW Convention and Code” are aimed at bringing the Convention and Code up to date with developments since they were initially adopted in 1978 and further revised in 1995; and to enable them to address issues that are anticipated to emerge in the foreseeable future. Amongst the amendments adopted, there are a number of important changes to each chapter of the Convention and Code, including: 1.Improved measures to prevent fraudulent practices associated with certificates of competency and strengthen the evaluation process (monitoring of Parties’ compliance with the Convention); 2.Revised requirements on hours of work and rest and new requirements for the prevention of drug and alcohol abuse, as well as updated standards relating to medical fitness standards for seafarers; 3.New certification requirements for able seafarers; 4.New requirements relating to training in modern technology such as electronic charts and information systems (ECDIS); 5.New requirements for marine environment awareness training and training in leadership and teamwork; 6.New training and certification requirements for electro-technical officers; Updating of competence requirements for personnel serving on board all types of tankers, including new requirements for personnel serving on liquefied gas tankers; 7.New requirements for security training, as well as provisions to ensure that seafarers are properly trained to cope if their ship comes under attack by pirates; 8.Introduction of modern training methodology including distance learning and web-based learning; 9.New training guidance for personnel serving on board ships operating in polar waters; and 10.New training guidance for personnel operating Dynamic Positioning Systems. Dibawah ini diambil dari petikan tulisan di website TRANSAS ECDIS GUIDE: All bridge officers should have general ECDIS training that follows the IMO Model Course 1.27. Additional equipment-specific training for the ECDIS model in use onboard is required for every ship, according to the ISM Code. Until the 1st of January 2012, when the new STCW code will include mandatory ECDIS training, two important shipping regulations must be followed. National authorities may require ECDIS training for vessels in their flag registries, or visiting their ports. The European Union has provided “Guidelines for Port State Control on Electronic Charts” with the Paris Memorandum of Understanding (PSC MOU). Port State control is authorised to determine if “Master and deck watchkeeping officers are able to produce appropriate documentation that generic and type-specific ECDIS familiarization has been undertaken.”
