How can the master of a UK ship determine whether a Medical Fitness Certificate issued in another country is acceptable for service on the ship?

By checking MSN 1815, which contains a list of countries issuing acceptable Medical Fitness Certificates. If the relevant country is not on the list, the company should be asked to find out from the MCA if it has been added since publication of the MSN.

What do you think?

Which M Notice contains guidance on general requirements for certification?

Are there any conditions under which a seafarer may continue to be employed after his/her Medical Fitness Certificate has expired?
