The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) does not have the figures for amendments to Safe Manning Documents requested dating back to 1998. However, the following figures are available from 2010 relating to all changes.

2010 – 94

2011 – 67

2012 – 68

2013 – 52

2014 – 139

2015 – 49 (to date)

The vast majority of these changes have been changes to names of ships or companies. A small number relate to changes in engine power or crew numbers.
