Seagoing Service

Seagoing service is the period a seafarer has signed on board a ship and is used as the basis for issuance of certificates. As a shipowner the Seagoing API is used to register seagoing service on a specific seafarer or several seafarers. Seagoing service is accepted when the sender is a ship owner, or an appointed representative i.e Master and Chief Engineer.

Occupation codes

The Norwegian Maritime Authorithy has decided a set of acceptable occupations when reporting seagoing service time. These occupations are the same as used in the “A-melding”, namely the STYRK codes. The acceptable STYRK codes are listed in Table 1.

All codes can also be obtained using the API operation List reference occupation codes, this list will always be updated. If the seafarer has worked in an occupation not listed in Table 1, a list of corresponding occupations can be found by using the API operation List reference occupation code mappings. For example the occupation “Platform chief” can be reported as “skipsfører”.
