The Maritime and Coastguard Agency publishes the annual statistics by calendar year for ENG1 seafarer medical fitness examinations on gov.uk. Information about the rank of the seafarer is not collected so it is not possible to give statistics for ratings and officers.

The total numbers of ENG1 seafarer medical fitness certificates issued in 2010 to 2017 are as follows:
