About the certificate

According to international regulations, everyone who works at sea must have a special medical certificate. When you as a sailor enroll, you must always carry your valid medical certificate with you.

When is a medical certificate required for seafarers?

In certain educations, it is a prerequisite for entry that the seafarer must be able to present an approved medical certificate for seafarers.

When applying for authorization for ship officers and engine officers via the Swedish Transport Agency, you must be able to demonstrate that the prescribed sight and hearing requirements are met. This also applies for special certifications for radio operators in GMDSS.

During service, all crew members on boats / ships engaged in commercial traffic, from a length of 6 meters and upwards, must have a valid medical certificate for seafarers.

How is the certificate issued?

The doctor performs a medical examination to clarify that you do not have any illness or other physical condition that could pose a danger to yourself or to others on board.
