SPECIALISED MEDICAL

Seafarers Medicals:

Maritime NZ is the only New Zealand administration able to certify New Zealand seafarer certificates. Any other organisation’s maritime certification documents for New Zealand are therefore invalid.

For STCW or STCW-F (aligned) certificates of competency or proficiency, only a registered medical practitioner who is approved by Maritime New Zealand (MNZ) may conduct medical examinations and issue STCW certificates of medical fitness
