Danish Health Certificate for Seafarers and Fishermen
To be able to work on a Danish ship you must undergo a medical examination by a maritime doctor on a regular basis. At the examination you are declared fit to work at sea. If you are admitted to a maritime education you also need to be examined by a maritime doctor.
The Danish Health Certificate for Seafarers and Fishermen is in full compliance with MLC and STCW. Rules for issuing Health Certificates can be found on the webpage of Danish Maritime Authority homepage. Read more here.
It is the maritime doctor who decides whether you as a seafarer is fit for sea service, possibly with restrictions. The decision is made taking into account the seafarer’s health and safety, as well as the rest of the crew and ship’s safety.
BEFORE YOUR EXAMINATION, it may be a good idea to log in to the Danish Maritime Authority’s self-service for seafarers, https://seafarer.dma.dk, by your NemID/MitID, it can be done on both PC and mobile phone.
This can also be done in the App “My Maritime” on iOS or Android devices. This is to facilitate approval from the Maritime Administration. At times this has run a bit slow.
Usually a medical examination is paid for by your employer. If you have been admitted to a maritime school the Danish Maritime Authority pays for your examination. You have the option of agreeing with your shipping company that we send them the invoice for your examination directly.
