Antigua and Barbuda does not issue Certificates of Competency. Therefore all officers at the operational and management level serving on Antigua and Barbuda ships are required to have an Antigua and Barbuda endorsement to their existing certificate (STCW Regulation I/10).
Antigua and Barbuda currently has undertakings with the following countries and is able to issue endorsements to certificates of competency issued by them:
|Argentina||Czech Republic||Honduras||Myanmar||Singapore||United States of America|
Applications for endorsements must be made through a recognized Filing Agent. The individual seafarer, manager, or owner can prepare the application but must submit it to a Filing Agent to be finalized. The Filing Agent will confirm authenticity of documents and signatures and then submit the application to the flag State.
