EMSA seafarer statistics 2019

(www.MaritimeCyprus.com) The statistical review presented in this report is based on data extracted from certificates and endorsements registered by EU Member States, Iceland and Norway until 31 December 2019. This data which was transferred and recorded in the STCW Information System (STCW-IS) until 31 December 2020, represents a snapshot of the European labour market in terms of the number of seafarers holding valid certificates and endorsements in 2019.

The data included in the STCW-IS shows that by end-2019, 216,000 masters and officers held valid certificates of competency (CoC) issued by EU Member States while another 120,590 masters and officers held original CoCs issued by non-EU countries with endorsements issued by EU Member States attesting their recognition (EaR).

Overall, the end of 2019 saw a third of a million masters and officers as potential manpower to serve on board EU Member State flagged vessels.

Note:

The statistical review presented in this report is based on data extracted from certificates and endorsements registered by EU Member States, Norway and Iceland until 31 December 2019, and received in the STCW-IS until 31 December 2020. This sixth review presents a snapshot of the number of seafarers holding valid certificates and endorsements in 2019. It should be noted that, because the data extracted from the national registers held by EU Member States did not include any information on whether the holders were active or not, it was not possible to determine how many of them were working on board vessels during 2019.
