COVER STORy
Ms. Pimentel of IMO
By Lyn Bacani
T
he private sector is basically united in its wish toinstitutionalize a single government agency as theAdministration of the Philippines in the implementationof the international convention on the Standards of Training,
Certication and Watchkeeping (STCW).
A resolution was passed and adopted at the national seminar 
on familiarization with the Manila Amendments to the STCW
Convention and Code held at the Maritime Academy of Asia and the
Pacic in Mariveles, Bataan July 22
nd
, this year.“… the current regime in the implementation of the STCW
Convention in the Philippines is fragmented into various
government agencies and, therefore, do not conform with the STCW
Convention implementation,” underscores the resolution signed by
industry leaders.
The resolution also recommends to maritime organizations and
stakeholders a unied stand for the Philippine government to
designate a Single Administration agency to solely and fully
responsible to effect the implementation of the STCW Conventionand Code, as amended in 2010, on or before 01 January 2012.
Back to Basic.
Atty. Brenda Pimentel, Regional Coordinator of the InternationalMaritime Organization (IMO) for East Asia says the Philippinesmust go back to basic to review the real intention of the STCWConvention.“It is a safety convention and not a labor convention,” Pimentelclaries.She cites the important factors of the STCW Convention are to
ensure that the signatories give meaning to the principles of the
Convention. They should create laws on the implementation of STCW to ensure safety of life and property at sea, protection of themarine environment and that seafarers onboard ships are qualiedand t for their duties.
Pimentel is disappointed on the prevailing appreciation in our 
country on STCW protocols. She perceives that in the Philippines,STCW’s focus on safety is seldom discussed. Instead, the thinking ishow many seafarers to deploy and how much dollars will they enter.“The Philippines must implement STCW in a new perspective, thusmust revisit the Convention,” Pimentel underscores.
A Debate on Perspective
STCW is orSaety,not Jobs nor Labor

MARINO WORLD

W
e do take a brave, bold stance as Marino World’s 6th Anniversarycoincides with the celebrations of the 16th National Seafarer’s Day
--- both daring as we commonly face-off with the competitions, force
majeure and the deceit of friends.Marino World was born amidst the economic turbulence in 2005. But beneath
the hustlings of our maiden issue was the unwavering support of the OSM
Group, one of the world’s leading shipping companies. OSM with its very rstmodel on billboard; Marino World with a seafarer family on the cover. Evenas we both grew, we continue to be grateful to OSM President RAdm AdonisDonato who became our regular columnist.I started the publication with two columnists: Atty. Tess Lora and Mrs. MindaGomez. The former was an arbiter and now Commissioner of the NationalLabor Relations Commission (NLRC); Mrs. Gomez is Vice President of theSeamen’s Wives Association of the Philippines, Inc. (SWAPI).
And as we rough the blue waters of mass media, more joined unexpectedly
aboard --- inspiring us, making Marino World for both the stalwarts and thecadets, of master mariners and merchant risk-takers. As time ies, more are nowwriting for us, from respected maritime stakeholders to industry icons.Yes, we have weathered gails and enjoined a few hails. Thus, we never forget
the maritime industry and the Filipino seafarers are one and the same tough
cookie. These we reect on our pages as we cover objectively the varioussectors and endeavors. These we inculcate in our psyche that life cannot just belove-birds but vultures, as well.We have a dening moment in 2007, when Marino World gained the supportof the Associated Marine Ofcers’ and Seamen’s Union of the Philippines(AMOSUP), the largest and most-inuential maritime labor union in thecountry.With informative and inspirational mix of articles, Marino World holds on to its
vision --- to help create a synergy between Government and the private sector 
in addressing concerns of our seafarers and their families. Simply stated, barely presented.And with the wind, Marino World – Go, Sail!
Go Sail, Pinoy!
