The Seafarer ENG11 Medical can only be performed by a doctor appointed by the Maritime Safety Directorate. The Merchant Shipping (Medical Examinations) Regulations 2014 make it a legal requirement for any seafarer, as defined in the Regulations, to hold a valid certificate attesting to their medical fitness for the work for which they are employed. This is to reduce risks to other crew members and for the safe operation of the ship, as well as to safeguard their personal health and safety.

Approved Doctors are required to determine a seafarer’s fitness by reference to the statutory medical and eyesight standards set out in the Regulations Medical fitness certificates are issued by an Approved Doctor in accordance with the provisions of the Regulations.
