We received many valuable messages from ours sailor friends asking us to write latest CDC renewal procedure. So here we go with our next article. before going to discuss procedure I want to tell you about the difference between renewal replacement and duplicate lets start now.


when you apply for renewal. you will receive renewal certificate in the form of a sticker, which you need to paste in your CDC on the additional page given for office use. original CDC not required to forward to shipping, master.


replacement is only applicable when your CDC is damaged and does not have clear details photograph is not clear or too old, all pages of your CDC are completely filled.


if you lost your CDC. then in order to get your CDC back, you need to apply for duplicate CDC.procedure is almost same only you need police diary or FIR copy.
