Transport Canada extends passenger safety management certificates

Chamber of Shipping > Blog > News > Government > Transport Canada extends passenger safety management certificates

Transport Canada’s latest bulletin extends the validity of certain certificates of competency or endorsements related to Passenger Safety Management and Specialized Passenger Safety Management (Ro-Ro Vessels). The extension applies to seafarers holding these certificates that would have otherwise expired between August 1, 2023, and January 1, 2024. The six-month extension period means there is no need to submit an application to obtain the certificates. However, seafarers whose certificates soon expire are recommended to renew their documents at a Transport Canada office at least 10 business days before the expiration date, despite the granted extension. This bulletin also applies to Authorized Representatives of Canadian-flagged vessels.
