AN INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENT

 

Like all treaties, the STCW Convention is an agreement between countries. As of November 1998, there were 133 countries which had formally expressed their commitment to the obligations expressed by the STCW Convention. Virtually every maritime country is a "party" to this agreement. Following is a summary of the articles of the STCW Convention. The summary highlights a number of basic principles.

ENGINE DEPARTMENT

Chapter III of the STCW Annex, and the associated sections of the STCW Code, are devoted to the requirements for the officers and ratings who serve in the engine department, and/or those who perform functions relating to marine engineering; electrical, electronic and control engineering; maintenance and repair; and controlling the operation of the ship and care for persons on board.

The structure of this chapter mirrors the structure of Chapter II. The first regulation focuses on the officer in charge of the watch and the operational level of responsibility. The second and third regulations focus on the chief engineer and second engineer officer, and the management level of responsibility. And the fourth regulation concerns the rating who is a part of the watch at the support level.

WATCH KEEPING

PARTS THAT MAKE UP THE WHOLE
 
The Articles

The Articles are the heart of a convention. They state the legal arrangements that exist between the countries which go through the formal process of agreeing to be bound by these arrangements. Both obligations and privileges are included in the articles of the STCW convention, as well as a number of limitations and controls. These are discussed in more detail in section 3 of this handbook.

The Articles in the STCW Convention have remained unchanged since they were originally adopted in 1978. The 1995 Amendments to the convention only affect the Annex to the convention.
