These vessels include those at anchor, docked, and loading or unloading passengers or cargo, but not those laid up, dismantled, or out of commission. Records of merchant mariners and vessels have been maintained by the Commandant since 1937. Only those records reflecting activities within the five preceding years are kept at Headquarters; all others are stored at the Federal Records Center in Suitland, MD. Records of merchant mariners who became inactive prior to 1937 are available from the, Judicial, Fiscal and Social Branch, National Archives, Washington, D.C. 20408. MMD Form CG-2838 replaces previously-issued Certificates of Identification, Certificates of Service, and Certificates of Efficiency. These certificates, no longer acceptable for employment, may be exchanged for current MMDs bearing corresponding endorsements. [NOTE: Holders of able seaman and lifeboatman certificates issued prior to 25 June 1936 must now be treated as original applicants.] An MMD is subject to suspension and revocation (S&R) under 46 U.S.C. 7701 on the same grounds and in the same manner as licenses of officers and Certificates of Registry. An MMD issued to a licensed officer is a certificate of service authorizing the officer to serve in unlicensed capacities, in the department in which licensed (see 46 CFR 12.02-11(c)).
