The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport (DTTAS) reminds the owners of ships and fishing vessels, as well as port authorities, pilots, seafarers and more, of the importance of proper pilot transfer arrangements.

These arrangements — with include pilot ladders — must be certified, maintained and rigged in accordance with Chapter V, Regulation 23 of the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS).

Ships engaged on voyages in the course of which pilots are likely to be employed shall be provided with pilot transfer arrangements in accordance with the same regulation.

Full details are included in Marine Notice No 33 of 2019, a PDF of which is available to read or download HERE.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
