What will the MCA require where agreement cannot be reached between the Company and the master or seafarers’ representatives on the manning levels?

MSN 1767 states: “If agreement cannot be reached between the owners or operator and master, and seafarers or seafarers’ representatives regarding manning levels, the MCA will consider the views put forward and, if appropriate, require the manning levels to be revised. When disagreement occurs, it may be necessary to arrange a practical demonstration of the crew’s ability to carry out the essential tasks in the context of the Principles of Safe Manning.”
