The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) has published a new edition of its Personal Training and Service Record Book, aiming to help qualified seafarers and their employers maintain a comprehensive record of training and seagoing service.

“Good record keeping of training and seagoing experience is essential to support a seafarer’s career at sea, and it is vital that shipping companies and seafarers are able to use a standard international book” said ICS Director of Policy, Simon Bennett. 

According to Mr Bennett, the new edition of the ICS record book includes a record of participation in drills, so it can also help during port state control inspections and when seafarers seek to revalidate their certificates, supporting at the same time shipping companies’ ISM Code processes.  

In addition, this latest ICS book, which is for use by all grades of qualified seafarers, supplements a series of ICS training record books for trainee officers and ratings, in both the deck and engine departments, which have been used by tens of thousands of seafarers worldwide.   

The revision of the ICS book coincides with the end of the transitional period for the 2010 Manila Amendments to the IMO STCW Convention, and takes full account of the latest STCW requirements, as well as developments, such as the entry into force of the ILO Maritime Labour Convention.

    Very interesting issue which ICS has taken up. Can provide an aide-memoire to all Officers n Ratings over their years of Service at sea. Kudos to ICS.
