SINGAPORE EASES CREW CHANGE PROCEDURES

SINGAPORE EASES CREW CHANGE PROCEDURES

Monday, January 11, 2021 

According to international shipowner organisation BIMCO, from 11 January the Singapore Maritime Port Authority is putting in place an enhanced crew change procedure.

Sea launches will be available at the port, and these launches must be chartered by all agents and owners when performing crew changes. Only the sign-on or sign-off crew may be on board, with no other personnel taking the same launch boat. Crew must remain ashore in the vehicle/transport until the launch boat(s) is/are ready for boarding. Crew must not loiter at the pier for the launch boat. Non-compliance will result in punitive measures.
