The Department does not hold information relating to which vessels specific ratings trainees are employed on. Some companies have Tonnage Tax fleets with a mix of UK and non-UK flagged vessels but are not required to report which vessel each rating trainee is employed on.

The Department does not require companies to report the residential address of ratings trainees. We receive aggregated data on the citizenship of all employees on vessels entered into tonnage tax, but do not ask for specific citizenship or residency information for each trainee.
