Be sure to take note that this is only for national endorsements, not STCW.

It’s useless for anyone sailing vessels greater than 200 GRT / 500 GT outside inland waters.

Although with the track record I’ve seen of companies not realizing when STCW applies (“we’re not going international so person X doesn’t need a valid STCW medical”, “person Y doesn’t need II/2 unless we go foreign”, etc) I expect the only people that will be restricted from sailing are those going foreign.
