The Faroese Maritime Authority has amended the Medical Certificate for Seafarers and fishers form according to the STCW and MLC 2006 Conventions.
The form may be completed electronically and is available on the FMA website.
Please note, that a new column has been added for the master to verify the seafarer’s medical certificate if the examination is conducted by a medical practitioner who is certified outside the Faroe Islands.
The FMA advice that all medical practitioners replace the old FMA Medical Certificate with the amended certificate by 1 January 2023. Already issued medical certificates remain valid until their expiry date.
