Seafarer Statistics in the EU - Statistical review (2014 data STCW-IS)
The statistical review presented in this report is based on data extracted from certificates and endorsements registered by EU Member States until 31 December 2014 and recorded in the STCW Information system. It represents a snap-shot of the European labour market in terms of the number of seafarers holding valid certificates and endorsements in 2014. This is the first year in repect of which such data is available. As more data is collected in the coming years, this will make possible trend analysis that should hopefully contribute to a better understanding of the maritime labour fource in Europe.
