Maritime medical examination

Maritime medical examination

If you are active or working in the shipping industry, you are required to periodically undergo a maritime medical examination. We examine whether you, as a crew member, meet the inspection requirements of maritime shipping. The maritime medical examination focuses on your medical fitness (health) and on the safety of your colleagues, other crew members and other waterway users. At MediWerk you can schedule and undergo your maritime medical examination quickly and without wating times. Our certified medical doctors perform the seafarers’ examination in accordance with the inspection guidelines of the Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate (ILT) and you will receive your ‘maritime medical certificate’ immediately after the examination. A maritime medical certificate is valid for two (2) years.
