ITN-22-18 Ring-fenced tickets - Equivalence to SRL endorsements

The purpose of this ITN is to provide interim guidance on which ring-fenced certificates of competency may be used in lieu of an SRL with an endorsement to operate larger vessels. The aim is to clarify that special privileges granted under a Minimum Safe Crewing Document (MSCD) are preserved under the ring-fencing of certificates.
