- The form must be filled out completely with position, ship, date, name, address, sex, new hire, date of birth and nationality.
- The section on CONDITIONS must be completed
- By signing the form, the candidate affirms that all information given is accurate and authorises NCL access to all previous and future medical records.

- The entire section starting with NAME OF EXAMINING FACILITY must be completely filled in by the examining doctor.

If you are currently on any medication you will need a letter from your doctor stating the name of the medication, the frequency it needs to be taken and the dosage. The letter should state:
“The medication does not impair candidate’s judgement during emergency situations and that they can work with no restrictions”.
Female applicants should note that OCP (oral contraceptive pill) is not a medication and so does not need to be declared on your form
