The Merchant Shipping Directorate will be conducting surveys to determine the number of seafarers serving onboard Maltese registered ships, categorized by rank, gender, age and nationality.
The surveys will be conducted as at the end of June and December of each year.
Maltese ships are hence required to send by electronic mail to email@example.com a copy of the ship’s crew list with the following header fields; name, surname, rank, gender, date of birth, nationality, date of engagement and duration of contract (if available) of all persons serving onboard the ship as at the end of June and December, irrespective of the position of the vessel.
The crew list, besides carrying the name and IMO number of the ship, should also indicate whether the vessel is trading, undergoing repairs or in lay-up.
The survey includes all sea going merchant ships, including river vessels and commercial yachts, operating under the Malta flag. Accurate collection of data is crucial for the success of the survey.
It is the responsibility of Masters and ISM Managers of ships operating under the Malta flag to ensure timely submission of an updated crew list by not later than 1 month from the aforementioned 6 month periods.
