Note regarding Pilot Information

Section 244(2)(d) of the Marine Safety Act 2010 (Vic) requires a register of all pilotage services providers to contain the name and licence number of each pilot employed or engaged by the provider. This register does not advise whether pilots listed are currently available to provide pilotage services under the requisite requirements in the Marine Safety Act 2010 (Vic).

Safe Transport Victoria recommends that customers confirm with the associated pilotage service providers that the listed pilots are available to operate under the requirements of the Marine Safety Act 2010 (Vic) before engaging a pilot for piloting services.
