Required Boarding Arrangements for Pilot - In accordance with SOLAS v/23 & IMO Resolution A.1045(27)
In accordance with IMO requirements and IMPA recommendations, this laminated A3 poster shows the ‘dos and don'ts’ of pilot boarding. It illustrates areas such as ‘Safe Approach of the Pilot Boat’ and provides for the ‘Installation of Pilot Ladder Winch Reels’. The poster reflects the requirements detailed in SOLAS Ch V Reg 23, which entered into force on 1st July 2012.
This is an update of the poster previously approved by IMO and circulated under MSC/Circ.568/Rev.1. The current poster was approved by the IMO NAV57 Committee in July 2011 and was ratified at IMO’s Maritime Safety Committee in May 2012 as part of a revision of SOLAS Regulation 23.
A??s a specialised agency of the United Nations, IMO is the global standard-setting authority for the safety, security and environmental performance of international shipping. Its main role is to create a regulatory framework for the shipping industry that is fair and effective, universally adopted and universally implemented.
In other words, its role is to create a level playing-field so that ship operators cannot address their financial issues by simply cutting corners and compromising on safety, security and environmental performance. This approach also encourages innovation and efficiency.
Shipping is a truly international industry, and it can only operate effectively if the regulations and standards are themselves agreed, adopted and implemented on an international basis. And IMO is the forum at which this process takes place.
