Revision to STCW 95 Convention for STCW 95 training course

The STCW Convention was drawn up in 1978. In 1995 the STCW code was established alongside the convention to further specify the conditions of the convention. This is the origin of the term STCW 95 and with it the name STCW 95 training course. In 1995 the STCW Convention for STCW 95 was thoroughly revised: vague phrases were removed or rewritten, it was adapted to the times, implementation obligations for the Convention countries were included and the Convention was divided into a Convention and a Code.


This convention did not exist before 1978 when the countries themselves could determine what the minimum requirements for shipping were. Unfortunately, this led to many risks and accidents. At the moment, 144 countries are bound by the STCW 95 Convention, which is about 98% of the entire world. The new convention, after the amendment also called STCW 95 convention, ensures that shipping is of good quality through the STCW 95 training course. The convention applies to all ships of the affiliated countries. It is important to mention that it only concerns the quality of the ship and the crew. The number of crew members is regulated in another convention, namely the SOLAS Convention.
