Dear Colleagues

MCA approved Doctors for renewal of Seafarers’ ENG1 Medical Certificate

Earlier this week, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) published two lists of Doctors they have approved to conduct medical examination of seafarers seeking to obtain or renew the ENG1 medical fitness certificate required by all seafarer ratings.

The first list is for all Doctors, UK wide approved by the MCA to conduct that medical examination and to issue seafarers with ENG1 medical certificates. A copy of the list is attached and a hard copy is in the post to all Shipping Branches.

The second list is of Doctors that specific employers ask seafarers to use when renewing their ENG1 medical certificate. This includes the Doctors that seafarers working for RFA (MoD), P&O and Northern Marine (Stena) are asked by their employer to use when renewing ENG1 certification. A copy of the list is attached and a hard copy is in the post to all Shipping Branches.

It would be appreciated if you could bring the content of this circular to the attention of all branch members and you will be updated with further developments.

Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
