The STCW Convention (The International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers) is an internal convention that sets qualification requirements for masters, officers and other watchkeeping personnel on merchant vessels. STCW was adopted by the UN’s maritime agency, the IMO in 1978, entering into force in 1984. The regulations were further expanded in 1995 and 2010.
