Panel #3 – Crew Change/Vaccination

13:00 GMT / 16:00 ATH / 21:00 SGT

200,000 seafarers are affected by restrictions which do not allow them from leaving their ships. According to the latest GMF data, the crisis is only getting worse, as the number of seafarers working over their contracts has grown from 5.8% in May 2021 to 7.4% in June. Given the availability of COVID-19 vaccines and rapid testing what should be further done to develop a range of practical solutions to resolve the ongoing crew change crisis?

Where do we stand with crew change figures and vaccination status?

What are the key challenges for ship operations with regards to crew vaccination?

How effectively have ship operations resumed back to normal with crew vaccination? What are the best practices and where do problems still exist?

What should be industry’s actions from now on to resolve crew change crisis?

How would you assess industry stakeholders’ response on crew change crisis until today? What’s is next?
