In October 2001, we formulated the comprehensive scheme of Pre-Employment Medical Examination (PEME) for Filipino seafarers and recommended the members to use the scheme in order to reduce their crew illness claims due to the pre-existing condition of the seafarer by way of performing extra tests in addition to the minimum standard.

For procedures and other consideration for using Japan P&I PEME Package, please refer to our Circular No.15-018 dated 19 February 2016. We would like to announce that we have updated our accredited clinic list as attached.
