Does a Tanker Endorsement have to be revalidated?


Evidence must be produced to the MCA of at least 3 months’ service (which need not be continuous) within the preceding 5 years on ordinary tankers, or at least 6 months on a storage tanker, barge or terminal in operations involving loading or discharging of tankers. If this evidence cannot be produced, the endorsement will be withdrawn.

What happens where a Tanker Endorsement is withdrawn as above, but the officer wants to work on another tanker?

Where a second or third Tanker Endorsement is required (e. g. for chemical and/or gas tankers), may the 3 months’ sea service be substituted?
