Sub: Guidelines - NWKO (NCV) Course
 

       Maritime safety and efficiency is of utmost concern to the Directorate General of Shipping(DGS), the constituted authority of the Government of India for all maritime affairs.
          It was noticed that some training institutes barely met the minimum standards set by the Directorate, while other provided training facilities that were world class.  In order to bring about uniformity of training, amenities and equipment provided by all, old guidelines were revised and new ones formulated.  This was done by the DGS in consultation with the training institutes and employers (shipowners and manning agencies).  Draft guidelines were displayed on the website of the DGS and comments invited from interested parties, regardless of the position or office held.
          Meetings of interested parties were held and modification made to the draft guidelines.  In keeping with Government policy, the guidelines have been made in as transparent manner as practicable.  The final guidelines for NWKO(NCV) Course is attached herewith.
          It is expected that training institutes would follow these guidelines in letter and spirit.
          The above guidelines shall come into force w.e.f. 01.05.2004

         This issues with the approval of the Director General of Shipping and ex-officio Addl. Secretary to the Government of India.
