Companies may submit a request to the Ministry of Transport (MOT) to obtain the minimum safe manning certificate of the big vessels. It is a certificate issued for Qatari vessels based on their types, sizes, and area of navigation. A company has to provide a manning suggestion on the number of crew on board, including seamen, navigation officers and marine engineers. This is in order that the competent department will review the submitted manning suggestion to know whether it is appropriate or not.
