The crew plan forms the basis for the crew certificate or Minimum Safe Manning Document, which is required for every seagoing vessel. In the crew plan, the shipowner indicates the minimum number of crew members he expects to be able to safely manage the ship in a desired sailing area. Functions and procedures for various operations on board are described in this plan. After approval of the crew plan by ILT, the crew certificate can be applied for. We would be happy to advise you on drawing up a crew plan and can, if desired, completely unburden you with the application.
