Panama PSC to inspect meds

ADVERTISEMENT

The Panama Maritime Authority has issued a Merchant Marine Notice advising that its Flag and Port State Control Officers (FSCOs and PSCOs) are conducting inspection and verification of medicine chests, medical equipment and guides on board ships in Panamanian jurisdictional waters.

“The Flag State and Port State Control surveyors shall ensure the control of labels, expiration dates, conditions for the conservation of medicines and the corresponding prospects, as well as the proper functioning of the equipment,” the notice reads.

“Personnel in charge of on board medical assistance must have satisfactorily completed a medical first aid or medical care training in accordance to the requirements of the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, 1978 (STCW, 1978); Rule VI/4; Section A-VI/4, Paragraphs 1-6.”
These requirements came into effect Jan. 1.
