  • Abstract:
    The prime objective of this study is to evaluate how recent developments in ship technology and management practices have impacted, and will continue to impact, on maritime crewing and training, in OECD countries, both ashore and at sea, over the next five to ten years. The study has addressed, both individually and collectively, the 30 OECD countries which share a commitment to democratic government and the market economy. All these countries, as shown in the study, have a marine interest, whether in the registration of vessels or in related shore based operations. Every effort has been made to look as widely as possible across all the OECD member nations. The research took two main thrusts. The theoretical stage covered desk top research with extensive investigations, primarily through the internet, and sourced all recent and current data applicable to the Terms of Reference. The practical stage was directed at obtaining views and opinions, through a series of questionnaires, from all sections of the marine industry (primarily where there is an OECD impact) including, but not restricted to, ship owners / managers, ship builders and designers, training colleges, seafarer unions, marine bodies in the shore industry and, finally, seafarers themselves. The main study is reported under three separate, but linked, chapters: 1) the Technical Review; 2) the People Review, including the Seafarer Perspective; and 3) the Training Review. Bibliography, tables, graphs, 113 p. This report is also available in French at http://www.oecd.org/dataoecd/50/22/18108814.pdf.
