Maritime Authority's Director General Chairs STW Sub-Committee

The Maritime Authority of Jamaica continues to contribute to important decision making at the International Maritime Organization (IMO) that seeks to positively influence world shipping.

 

This opportunity was again realized when Rear Admiral Peter Brady, Director General of the Maritime Authority of Jamaica (MAJ), was once more unanimously elected to chair the International Maritime Organization's (IMO) 37th Session of the Standards of Training and Watchkeeping (STW) Sub-Committee to be held in January 2006.

This will be the fourth time that Admiral Brady will be chairing this prestigious committee, having chaired twice before while holding the position of Vice-Chair and this year as Chairman, having been elected in 2004 to oversee the 36th Session just completed.

"I am very appreciative of the confidence that the rest of the world has shown in Jamaica's ability to competently guide these important deliberations by electing us to be the Chair for two consecutive years. Prior to being elected as chair I was Vice-Chair for two years, but had to actually act as Chair due to the unavoidable absence of the then elected chairman." Peter Brady explained.

Jamaica is signatory to the STCW Convention which guides the training of seafarers attending the Caribbean Maritime Institute (CMI), the training institution for Jamaican and Caribbean seafarers. The MAJ has oversight for the academic standards required by the STCW Convention and remains vigilant in ensuring that these standards are maintained.

Some of the main agenda items discussed at the 36th session included matters relating to passenger ship safety; measures to enhance maritime security training and certification requirements; development of training requirements for the control and management of ships, ballast water and sediments; development of competence for ratings validation of IMO model courses, and unlawful practices associated with certificates of competency.

Jamaica's delegation to the meeting also included Captain Winston Chin, Surveyor at the MAJ.
