Cebuano Cebuano English English Filipino Filipino


The Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA) refuted claims on Thursday that non-compliance with EU maritime regulations might result in Filipino sailors losing their jobs on ships from the European Union (EU).

According to MARINA, the country complained to the European Commission about its implementation of the Standards of Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping (STCW) Convention for Seafarers 1978 in March and submitted a report stating that it was in “complete compliance.”

The report includes a reaction and a calculated action plan to deal with the complaints.

According to a statement on its Facebook page, “It was the outcome of close coordination among government agencies and maritime industry partners representing maritime education and training, ship management and manning, and seafarers.”

It stressed that claims that the Philippines has not been following EMSA regulations are “false” news.

A prior claim that President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. “stripped” MARINA of any involvement in the training and accreditation process as a result of the nation’s inability to pass EMSA evaluations was refuted by Department of Migrant Workers (DMW) Secretary Susan Ople.

She claimed that Marcos ordered the Department of Transportation’s various agencies to develop a coordinated implementation plan to address the issues brought up by EMSA.
