Attention, from 17 January 2022 onwards, Medex can no longer perform medical examinations for boatmen.

A recent Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on the recognition of professional qualifications in inland navigation stipulates that from 17 January 2022 the regions must recognise the doctors who are allowed to perform the medical examinations of inland skippers.

For the Flemish Region, we refer to the information on the website of De Vlaamse Waterweg:

Under the new regulations on professional qualifications, the Walloon Region has decided to grant recognition to all doctors who have a Belgian Sickness and Invalidity Insurance number (RIZIV or INAMI number). The medical certificate issued by Medex at the latest on 14/01/2022 will be accepted by the services of the Walloon Region for the period of validity of the certificate, which is three months in accordance with European rules.
