Pilot exempt masters
A master of a vessel may apply to the Safety Director for an exemption from the requirement to use the services of a pilot in pilot-required waters.
A pilot exemption may be granted subject to any condition imposed by the Safety Director, including a condition limiting the exemption to a particular port.
A pilot exemption granted takes effect on the day that it is granted; and remains in effect for a period of two years unless suspended or cancelled.
