Today, ship owners and managers face huge problems in meeting the STCW requirements regarding endorsements and certification of officers and crew. International Shipping Bureau facilitates not only the requests of Ship Owners for the maritime industry, but also the seafarers. There are very few organizations that take into consideration the interest of the Seafarer and ISB is one such organization.
ISB provides the service to all seafarers in obtaining license and seamen book under various flags for Master, Chief Officer, Chief Engineer and all other officers and ratings as per the STCW (78/95) Convention Regulations, easily and promptly. ISB, through its local offices, provides value added services of verification of seafarer's certificates and fast processing of permanent licenses and endorsements. On most occasions, ISB would be able to provide the services of endorsements from relevant flag at the home country of seafarer or signing in port.
