(a) A merchant mariner credential (MMC) (Coast Guard Form CG–4610), is a credential combining
the elements of the merchant mariner's document (MMD), merchant mariner's license
(license), and certificate of registry (COR) enumerated in 46 U.S.C. subtitle II part
E as well as the STCW endorsement issued pursuant to the STCW Convention and STCW
Code (incorporated by reference, see § 10.103 of this part). MMDs, licenses, STCW endorsements and CORs are no longer issued as separate documents
and all qualifications formerly entered on those separate documents appear in the
form of an endorsement(s) on an MMC.
(b) An MMC authorizes the holder to serve in any capacity endorsed thereon, or in any
lower capacity in the same department, or in any capacity covered by a general endorsement.
(c) An MMC may be issued to qualified applicants by the Coast Guard.
