1 Directions as to the Examination of Engineer Officers, Marine Engine Operators and Engine Room Watch Ratings under the Merchant Shipping Acts. Effective from September 2010

2 CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION Preamble: Certain changes were made to the examination structure and issue of Marine Engineering certificates of competency (CoC) in order to comply with the requirements of the Seafarer s Training Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW) Code as amended by the STCW Conference in 1995 (STCW 95). These changes took full effect on 1 February 2002 and from this date all engineer officer certificates of competency must be issued in accordance with STCW 95 to retain their validity. Engineer Officers holding certificates issued before this date which have not been issued in accordance with the 1995 amendments must surrender these certificates for revalidation if they wish their certificates to remain valid for sea service. 1.1 These directions, issued under the Merchant Shipping (Training and Certification) Regulations, 2007, made under Section 3 of the Merchant Shipping (Certification of Seamen) Act, 1979, specify the standards of competency and the conditions to be satisfied before Engineer Officer Certificates of Competency, Marine Engine Operator Licences and Engine Room Watch Rating Certificates are issued. ENGINEER OFFICER CERTIFICATES ISSUED UNDER THE TRAINING AND CERTIFICATION REGULATIONS ARE ISSUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION ON STANDARDS OF TRAINING, CERTIFICATION AND WATCHKEEPING FOR SEAFARERS, 1978, AS AMENDED (STCW 95). THESE DIRECTIONS GIVE PARTICULARS OF - a) the conditions of entry to and the conduct of the examinations to be held by the Department of Transport for Certificates of Competency (CoC) and Marine Engine Operator Licences (MEOL) in an Engineering capacity for service in seagoing ships. b) the issue of Certificates of Equivalent Competency (CEC) issued by the Department of Transport which may be accepted as being equivalent to those Certificates of Competency granted by the Department of Transport for service on Irish seagoing ships. c) the issue of Engine Room Watch Rating Certificates.

CHAPTER 5 CERTIFICATE OF COMPETENCY - SEA SERVICE (GENERAL PROVISIONS) 5.1 Qualifying Sea Service. Except where particular limitations are placed upon it or where relaxations are specifically allowed, qualifying sea service means service under crew agreement as engineer officer on regular watch over main propelling machinery or auxiliary machinery when such machinery is in full use. A minimum of six months qualifying sea service for any particular certificate of competency must have been performed within a period of five years preceding the date of the examination. The remaining qualifying sea service must have been performed within a period of ten years preceding the date of the examination Sporadic use of main propelling machinery. Service performed in ships where for considerable periods the main propelling machinery is not used, is reckoned as one and a half times the number of days actually spent under way, but in no case can it exceed the time served under crew agreement during the period concerned. In such cases the testimonials produced in accordance with paragraph 5.2 must carry a statement as to the number of days actually spent under way with the main propelling machinery in full use.

17 5.1.2 Chief Engineer greater than 3000 kw (STCW 95, Reg. III/2): The minimum periods as engineer officer in a position of responsibility specified in paragraph 4.3 for Reg III/2 examination purposes should be performed as Engineer Officer in Charge of a Watch or in a higher rank. In the case of each candidate who holds a Certificate of Competency Chief Engineer greater than 3000kW, either motor or steam, and who requires further service for the examination leading to the issue of a Chief Engineer Combined Certificate, the following applies: Service performed in ships of not less than 3,000 kilowatt registered power, not in charge of a watch, but on watch or otherwise substantially concerned with main propelling machinery of the appropriate description (steam or motor) will be accepted at half rate Unattended Machinery Spaces. Service performed in ships where the main propelling machinery operates regularly in the periodically unattended mode will be accepted at full rate Unusual Service. Service which consists of work of an unusual nature, but which may be considered pertinent to the operational experience of an engineer officer, will be accepted up to a maximum of nine months, either at full rate or at some proportional rate dependent upon the nature of the work involved. Such service will not be accepted as counting towards the minimum required to be spent in watchkeeping on main propelling machinery. Service is not generally acceptable if it consists of work not usually performed by a watchkeeping engineer officer Auxiliary machinery. Service in watchkeeping on auxiliary machinery will be accepted at full rate. Such service will not be accepted as counting towards the minimum required to be spent in watchkeeping on main propelling machinery Day Work. Engineering work carried out at sea, other than that performed on regular watch, will be accepted at full rate. Such service will not be accepted as counting towards the minimum required to be spent in watchkeeping or UMS duties on main propelling machinery Offshore Service. Service in self-propelled offshore units where the unit is undertaking sea-going passages or well shifts or when it is engaged in maintaining a fixed station by continuous use of the main propelling machinery will be accepted at full rate. Service in self-propelled offshore units where the unit is fixed on station in either the drilling or service mode will be accepted at full rate. Such service will not be accepted as counting towards the minimum required to be spent in watchkeeping on main propelling machinery.
