STCWF 95 Regulations & Certification – IMO International Convention for Fishing Vessels

The International  Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Fishing Vessel Personnel (STCW-F) was adopted by IMO in 1995. On July 7, 1995 the STCW-F was adopted as a separate treaty as part of the comprehensive revisions to STCW. STCWF came into force on September 29, 2012.

STCW-F Code applies the principles of STCW to fishing vessels from ratifying states that are 24 meters in length and above and officers in the engine department of fishing vessels of powered by main propulsion machinery of 750 kW propulsion power or more. The STCWF Convention supports harmonization of qualifications by introducing a minimum level of training for everyone working on fishing vessels to which the Convention applies.

The 1995 STCW-F Convention is a binding treaty that sets certification and minimum training requirements for crews of seagoing fishing vessels with the aim to promote the safety of life at sea and the protection of the marine environment, taking into account the unique nature of the fishing industry and the fishing working environment.
