Under what circumstances does STCW 2010 permit a seafarer to serve on a ship without endorsement of the flag State Administration’s recognition of a certificate issued by another Administration?

A seafarer commences approved seagoing service, an approved education and training programme or an approved training course after 1 July 2013. Can the validity of any certificate issued extend beyond 1 January 2017?
