Southampton, UK – 10 April 2018 – Azimuth Nautical Solutions has today launched a new UKLAP Grade 2 Assessment & Report Service for those companies who are required by the UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) to evaluate Officers on their UK Legal & Administrative Processes (UKLAP) knowledge at Grade 2 level and maintain a record of satisfactory test completion.
Any officer working on board a UK-registered vessel who does not hold a UK Certificate of Competency (CoC) must have a Certificate of Equivalent Competency (CEC). To be eligible to hold a UK CEC, the MCA advises in MSN 1867(M) that all Chief Mates, Chief Engineers and Second Engineers need to have knowledge of UKLAP to enable safe and efficient vessel operation in compliance with UK regulations.
All owners and operators of UK vessels are responsible for ensuring that their officers have this knowledge. Chief Mates, Chief Engineers and Second Engineers need to have knowledge of UKLAP equivalent to Grade 2 and must be assessed by their company, with the details of the test being kept on record in the company office for inspection by the MCA.
A 1-page summary of this new assessment and report service is available for reference at: UKLAP Grade 2 Assessments
