This record book covers the practical operation and knowledge covering the safe carriage of chemical products, with emphasis on hands-on experience. It has been developed to provide a reduction from three months to one month (i.e. 30 days) for the regulatory sea service requirement for endorsement/certification, provided that you serve this period in a supernumerary capacity.


The book enables you to record details of the vessel(s) on which you are undertaking your sea service and its/their trading itinerary during the qualifying period. It lists the training and tasks to be undertaken and there is provision for the Master and supervisor to sign the book to confirm satisfactory completion.


The tasks are grouped under broad areas of activity, as follows:


  • Safety

  • Cargo, cargo tanks and pipelines

  • Trim and stability

  • Cargo operations

  • Tank washing procedures

  • Inert gas system

  • Pollution prevention and control

  • Gas detection equipment and instruments.


The book also lists a range of publications relevant to chemical tanker operations that you are expected to know about in terms of what they cover.


Full details of MCA requirements are provided in Annex A.
