Medical Certificate


Dec. 2022: The Faroese Maritime Authority has amended the Medical Certificate for Seafarers and fishers form according to the STCW and MLC 2006 Convention.

The seafarer and the medical practitioner fill out the form, and the seaferer keeps page 4 with the doctor's signature and stamp.

Note that the form may be completed electronically. Please also note, that a new column has been added for the master to verify the seafarer’s medical certificate if the examination is conducted by a medical practitioner who is certified outside the Faroe Islands.
Note that when sending medical examinations to the FMA, please only send page 4.
