To All Ship Owners, Operators, Masters and Agents
Attention is drawn to ships Masters to ensure that arrangements for the boarding and disembarkation of pilots meet the required standards.
A Pilot may refuse to use an improperly rigged pilot boarding arrangement until such time as it is made safe to do so. This will incur delay to vessels as a result.
Attached for guidance is the International Maritime Pilots Association (IMPA) pilot ladder and equipment rigging diagram.
