Maritime Administrations + MET institutions
Maritime Administrations – Seafarers’
Division
• Certification system;
• Certificates issued (number of seafarers);
• Fraudulent certificates;
MET Institutions
• Programmes and courses offered;
• Students and diplomas;
• Training Facilities;

Seafarers
supply
 The total number of CoCs issued
by country?
 The total number of EU certified
seafarers?
 The number of seafarers from
third countries serving on board
ships flying the flag of an EU
Member State?
 The Age profile of EU seafarers?
34
 The number of cadets from MET
institutions versus the age profile
of existing seafarers?
 The real shortage of EU seafarers?
 The impact will face the EU shipping
industry if EC will decide to withdraw
the recognition of CoCs issued by a
third country?
 The trends on seafarers supply in EU?
