Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) Medical Examinations

The purpose of an Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) medical examination is to assist Medical Inspectors of Seafarers (MIS) to decide if the applicant demonstrates any functional or musculoskeletal disability which could interfere with his/her ability to safely go out to sea. Safety is defined as the applicant’s capacity to work without risk to their own or other’s health and safety.

The assessment is used to report to the MIS any musculoskeletal/functional findings observed during the performance of test items which are designed to take into consideration the functional tasks required of seafarers.

The coordination and administration of all Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) medical examinations leading to the issue of a Certificate of Medical Fitness under Marine Orders Part 9, are administered by Sonic HealthPlus on behalf of AMSA.
