Some members of the Audit Team from EMSA, SAMSA and SSTG

SSTG has just participated in a national audit for our Administrators, SAMSA, to prove compliance with the STCW Code in terms of seafarer training.

We would like to thank Mr. Antonio Hevia Rodriguez and Mr. Daniel Rodes Garcia from EMSA (European Maritime Safety Agency) for their insight into the convention and the professional manner in which they conducted the audit.

We hope that SSTG’s contribution to this audit showcases what South Africa provides in terms of quality seafarers to the industry.
