Revised list of certificates and documents required to be carried on board

  dd-mm-yyyy = Entry into force
Revised byMSC.1/Circ.1409

  1. The Facilitation Committee, at its nineteenth session, developed a list of certificates and documents required to be carried on board ships together with a brief description of the purpose of the certificates and other relevant documents. This work was carried out in connection with the provisions of section 2 of the annex to the FAL Convention concerning formalities required of shipowners by public authorities on the arrival, stay and departure of ships. The Facilitation Committee considered that these provisions should not be read as precluding a requirement for the presentation for inspection by the appropriate authorities of certificates and other documents carried by the ship pertaining to its registry, measurement, safety, manning, classification and other related matters.

  2. The list, as approved by the Maritime Safety Committee, the Facilitation Committee and the Marine Environment Protection Committee, at their respective sessions, was circulated under symbol FAL.2/Circ.35-MEPC/Circ.207-MSC/Circ.593. The list was later revised and circulated under symbol FAL.2/Circ.42-MEPC/Circ.303-MSC/Circ.704, dated 21 September 1995 and FAL/Circ.90-MEPC/Circ.368-MSC/Circ.946, dated 3 July 2000.

  3. Due to amendments to the 1974 SOLAS Convention, as amended, which entered into force on 1 January 2002, 1 July 2002, 1 January 2004 and 1 July 2004, respectively; and amendments to MARPOL 73/78, which entered into force on 1 September 2002, as well as the entry into force of Annex IV of that Convention on 27 September 2003, the list has been revised to take account of the relevant provisions of the aforementioned amendments. The revised list of certificates and documents required to be carried on board ships, approved by FAL 31 (19 to 23 July 2004), MEPC 52 (11 to 15 October 2004) and MSC 79 (1 to 10 December 2004), is set out at annex.

  4. The certificates and documents this circular lists are only those required under IMO instruments and it does not include certificates or documents required by other international organizations or governmental authorities.

  5. Member Governments are invited to note the information provided in the annex and take action as appropriate.

  6. This circular supersedes FAL/Circ.90-MEPC/Circ.368-MSC/Circ.946.
