Why use GMCG?

All seafarers serving on board foreign flagged ships must have their national certificates of competency endorsed for recognition by the foreign flag administration which then issues an endorsement attesting the recognition of a certificate issued under the provisions of the STCW Convention.

Some foreign flag administrations also require endorsements of Ship Security Officers as well as Oil, Chemical & Gas Tanker Operations certificates of competency. For all ratings and other crew members, a Continuous Discharge Certificate (CDC) or Seaman’s Discharge Book is normally required.
