History and Objectives

The NSA Provident Fund was established on April 1,1992, by the Collective agreement between the Norwegian Shipowners’ Association (NSA) and AMOSUP, for the benefit of the Filipino seafarers serving on board vessels registered with NIS and also for seafarers who are serving on Non-Norwegian vessels but operated by Norwegian shipping companies.

It was initiated to provide better benefits to Filipino seafarers not only to promote professionalism among Filipino seamen and officers but also to give credence to its commitment in improving the lives of their families.It was also established to encourage Filipino seafarers to continue sea services onboard Norwegian owned or controlled vessels. Its provision and the benefit are included in both the NIS CBA and Model Agreement.
