The Directorate of the Social Marine Institute announces the subsidy scheme, with a maximum amount of 500,000 euros and 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 2021, regulated by the provisions of Order ESS/2542/2014, of 5 December, and in the Resolution of the Social Marine Institute, of 23 June 2022, which includes financial assistance for the provision of medical kits for use on ships, for the year 2021.

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.

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.

Beneficiaries

The subsidies may be applied for by employers who operate vessels duly registered or flagged in Spain for maritime shipping or fishing, excluding:

  • River navigation.
  • Warships.
  • Recreational craft used for non-commercial purposes that do not have a professional crew, and
  • Tugs sailing in the port area.

An employer is understood as the registered shipowner or shipping or fishing company that owns a ship, except if the ship has been chartered with the assignment of nautical management or is managed, in whole or in part, by a natural or legal person other than the registered owner, in accordance with the terms of a management agreement; in this case, the charterer with nautical management or the natural or legal person managing the ship will be considered an employer.

Publicity

In the year following the awarding of the subsidy, in order to give adequate publicity to the public nature of the scheme, the beneficiaries must place a sticker in a visible place on the main kit of the subsidized vessel as per the model defined in Annex VIII of the notice resolution.

For this purpose, the provincial offices of the Social Marine Institute will provide the subsidy beneficiaries with the corresponding stickers within the month following the date of the resolution.
