What we need to know about PEME?
PEME stands for Pre Employment Medical Examination. This is one crucial medical requirement for a seafarer to be able to get onboard for a contract. Other medical requirements are Vaccinations, COVID testing, Drug and Alcohol test, which the Nordic Medical Clinic is also able to serve to our customers.
PEME Appointment and Costs
NMC has an appointment system wherein Crewing Teams schedule the seafarers for their PEME. Costs vary depending on the customer requirement, different packages for age groups, shipowner, flag and P&I requirements.
PEME Medical Results
Your PEME results are available within 24 hours. An NMC Doctor sends a curated email to the seafarer on the status, and also a health education call from NMC Doctor too within the day to explain the results. Once Medical Fitness is finalized, the printed and signed medical certificates are delivered to the Crewing Office.
Post-PEME Conversation with Doctor
Every seafarer gets to see an NMC Doctor for Follow-Up Consultation to explain and educate them on their PEME results. Now done online, through emails and calls. The follow-up process after PEME helps in building a trusting relationship between seafarer and doctor, and allows long-term partnership for their health, helping the seafarer to have an enduring career for the industry, and ensuring the welfare for the seafarer’s family.
