What nationality restrictions apply to the master of a UK ship?

The Merchant Shipping (Officer Nationality) Regulations 1995 provide that the master of every strategic ship must be: (1) a Commonwealth citizen; or (2) an EEA national; or (3) a national of a State (other than an EEA State) which is a member of NATO. On other UK ships there are no nationality restrictions on the master.
