SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background and Purpose

    The Coast Guard has revised the Merchant Mariner Credential Medical 
Evaluation Report (CG-719 K) and the Merchant Mariner Evaluation of 
Fitness for Entry Level Ratings (CG-719 K/E) forms and announces their 
availability to the public. These forms are used to facilitate 
obtaining objective medical information, which will assist the Coast 
Guard in making accurate and timely fit-for-duty determinations in 
order to reduce maritime safety risks. Please note that these versions 
of the forms have been approved for use by the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) and have been assigned OMB Control Number 1625-0040.
    The CG-719 K/E form should be used only by mariners seeking an

applicants for the following rating endorsements: Ordinary Seaman, 
Wiper, or Steward's Department (food handler). The CG-719K form should 
be used for all other endorsement applications.
    These forms more clearly align the merchant mariner credentialing 
process with the policies set forth by Navigation and Vessel Inspection 
Circular (NVIC) 04-08, Medical and Physical Evaluation Guidelines for 
Merchant Mariner Credentials. (The NVIC is available for viewing at 
http://www.uscg.mil/hq/cg5/nvic/2000s.asp#2008.) Enclosure (3) to the

Guard in obtaining objective medical evidence of an applicant's 
physical condition as it relates to their ability to perform duties as 
a merchant mariner. Proper use of these forms as guided by NVIC 04-08 
should lead to reduced processing times for mariners' applications.

Implementation Timeline

    These forms are available at the NMC Web site (see ADDRESSES 
above). The Coast Guard is working to create both a printable user 
guide and to embed instructions in the electronic version of the form

forms.
    The forms are now available for use. Physical exams completed on or 
after January 1, 2010 must be on the new forms, Rev (01/09). Physical
