Directive (EU) 2022/993 - formally signed by the co-legislators on 8 June 2022 - as regards the minimum level of training of seafarers. This is a text with EEA relevance.
This Directive incorporates, into EU law, minimum standards of training, certification and watchkeeping for seafarers serving on board EU vessels. The standards were fixed by the Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for seafarers (STCW Convention) of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO).
The draft law was tabled by the European Commission on 18 November 2020. Its purpose was to undertake a codification of Directive 2008/106/EC, superseding the various acts incorporated in it. The proposal fully preserved the content of the acts being codified and hence did no more than bring them together with only such formal amendments as are required by the codification exercise itself. The European Parliament adopted its position on 5 April 2022, which was endorsed by the Council of the European Union on 24 May. The Act was formally signed by the co-legislators on 8 June 2022 and published in the Official Journal on 27 June 2022.
