The Directorate of the Social Marine Institute announces the subsidy scheme with a maximum amount of 500,000 euros, on a competitive basis, for financial assistance for the mandatory on-board medical kit for ship companies included in the provisions of Royal Decree 258/1999, of 12 February, which sets out the minimum conditions for healthcare protection and medical assistance of seafarers for the year 2019, regulated by the provisions of Order ESS/2542/2014, of 5 December, and in the Resolution of the Social Marine Institute, of 5 June 2020, which includes financial assistance for the provision of medical kits for use on ships, for the year 2019.

In accordance with the amendments made to Article 20.8 of Law 38/2003, of 17 November, the General Subsidies Act, by Law 15/2014, of 16 September, on rationalising the Public Sector and other administrative reform measures; the entire text of the subsidy announcement will be published in the National Subsidies Database (BDNS).

Type of assistance

Two types of assistance will be provided: for the initial purchase of medical kits and for replacing them. Both include:

  • The medical supplies financed by the National Health System in the formats and quantities required in appendices II and IV (for general antidotes) of Royal Decree 258/1999, of 12 February.
  • The medical material, forming part of the mandatory medical kit, detailed in appendix I of the notice resolution.

These subsidies will not cover amounts corresponding to the purchase or replacement of cabinets and containers in which the on-board medical kit is stored.

Amount

The amount of the assistance will be determined on the basis of:

  1. The regulatory medical kit corresponding to each category of vessel.
  2. The allocation specified for each type of medical kit taking into account the number of  workers registered on the boat.

For both types of assistance schemes, initial allocation and replacement, the amount of the subsidy will be:

  • Medical Kit A: Sixty-five per cent (65%) of the actual cost of the medicines included in the regulatory medical kit funded by the Social Security and the actual cost of the medical materials included in appendix I of this notice resolution.
  • Medical Kit B: Seventy per cent (70%) of the actual cost of the medicines included in the regulatory medical kit funded by the Social Security system and the actual cost of the medical materials included in appendix I of this notice resolution.
  • Medical Kit C: Ninety per cent (90%) of the actual cost of the medicines included in the regulatory medical kit funded by the Social Security system and the actual cost of the medical materials included in Appendix I of this notice resolution.
  • Life raft medical kit: Ninety per cent (90%) of the actual cost of the medical kit.
  • General antidote kit: Sixty-five per cent (65%) of the actual cost of medicines funded by the Social Security system.

The assistance will cover all medical kits on board, which the vessel is required to carry, requested by the beneficiary.

Applications, as well as other documents and communications, will be submitted according to the provisions of articles 14 and 16 of Law 39/2015, of 1 October, on the Common Administrative Procedure of Public Administrations.

When the subsidy applicant is a joint ownership or a professional civil society, they must include the relevant appendix indicating the details and signature of all its members. The signature and details of the legal representative of the society or joint ownership entity will appear on the application form.

Applications submitted on the form attached in appendix II will be signed by the interested parties or individuals who accredit that they represent the interested parties by any valid legal means, both for physical and online submission, and must be accompanied by the following documentation:

  1. Accreditation of the identity of the applicant and/or legal representative.

    • If the applicant and legal representative is an individual and opposes the consultation by the Social Marine Institute regarding the identity data held by the Home Office, they must submit the national identity or foreigner identity document.

    • If the applicant is a legal entity and it opposes the consultation by the Social Marine Institute regarding the identity data, it must provide a document accrediting the tax identification number of the beneficiary.

    • Representation will be accredited by any valid legal means that reliably substantiates this representation pursuant to article 5.4 of Law 39/2015, of 1 October. It may also be accredited by a certificate issued by the relevant Social Marine Institute provincial office.

    If a single invoice includes items for the acquisition or replacement of medicines or medical material for different vessels belonging to the same beneficiary, the invoice must specify which items correspond to each vessel.

Prior to their return, these invoices will be marked with a stamp following the model in appendix VII of the notice.
