The SG-STAR Fund is the first global tripartite initiative bringing together like-minded international partners from the industry, unions and government to facilitate safe crew changes. The fund, based in Singapore, will be disbursed for use upstream in countries such as Philippines and India where seafarers come from. A SG-STAR Fund Taskforce (SFTF) has been formed to push ahead with these efforts.
As part of the SFTF’s efforts, the SFTF have developed a CrewSafe audit program that endeavours to assist crew source nations to bring a higher level of confidence and quality control checks into crew change processes such as quarantine/holding, medical and swabbing facilities. The SFTF will then make known these facilities if the processes & facilities meet the requirements for proper and tight practises (taking Singapore as the reference) in the entire operational process.
