Annex 3 Requirements to be issued or maintained a pilotage certificate or pilotage exemption certificate

Introduction:

This annex (see DPA website, www.lodstilsynet.dk) aims to ensure that the applicant obtains a sufficient local knowledge to the various pilotage areas, harbors, inlets, ditches and bridges, so that the applicant can assess the risks associated with navigation in these pilotage areas.
In order to be issued or maintained a pilotage certificate or pilot exemption certificate holder shall meet the applicable requirements for sailing frequency. Sailing frequency is defined as a number of lodsninger/boating, which is divided into the following categories:

-Category A-at least 20 lodsninger/sailings per year from the date of certification of continuous pilotage area (high risk port and pilotage areas – possibly with accompanying upgrade requirements)

-Category A *-If the holder of a certificate with an A region have met the requirements for navigation frequency continuously for more than 5 years, halving the requirement for at least 10 lodsninger/sailings per year on an ongoing basis.

-Category B-at least 10 lodsninger/sailings per year from the date of certification of continuous pilotage area (medium-risk ports and – pilotage areas possibly associated with the upgrade requirements)

-Category B *-If the holder of a certificate with a B area has met the requirements for navigation frequency continuously for more than 5 years, halving the requirement for a minimum of 5 lodsninger/sailings per year on an ongoing basis.

-Category C-5 lodsninger/boating and less per year on an ongoing basis from the date of certification of the pilotage area (low-risk ports and get lodsninger).

If the holder for more than 5 years have not had at least a pilotage/navigation in a category C area, lost his certification in that pilotage area.

If the holder of a pilotage certificate or a pilotage exemption certificate no longer meets the applicable requirements for sailing frequency, pilotage certificate or pilot exemption certificate submitted to the Danish maritime authority.

If the holder of a pilotage certificate or a pilotage exemption certificate has other valid pilotage areas, pilotage certificate or pilotage exemption certificate is submitted, after a new valid certificate is received.

Special for pilotage certificates:

Pilotage certificate can be restricted to different ship sizes see. § 2, paragraph 3.

A pilot should, as a starting point, have made at least three lodsninger on a certified upgrade steps to become certified for the next upgrade step. The Danish maritime authority may, however, compiling individual upgrade plans for the individual pilot, taking account of his experience as a pilot, etc.

Special for pilotage exemption certificates:

To be used in fulfilment of the requirements for the pilot's local knowledge for acquisition of pilotage exemption certificate to the Harbour, fjord, leaked-and brolodsnings areas of the basic regulation. section 15 (1) (8). 1.

Who should not use pilotage by fulfilment of the requirements for local knowledge for acquisition of pilotage exemption certificate to other pilotage areas, if the applicant during the voyage accompanied and trained by a Navigator who is in possession of a valid pilot exemption certificate for that pilotage area referred to in article 6. section 15, paragraph 2.

Explanation to the schemas:

In the left side (light green) visible segmentation of pilotage areas, harbors, inlets, ditches and bridges, which stipulates the requirements that must be met in order to be issued or maintained a pilotage certificate or pilotage exemption certificate.

In the right side (light blue) seen the upgrade requirements for pilots who want certificate to larger ships.

Upgrade requirements (light blue) is not relevant to the issue or maintained a pilotage exemption certificate, as a pilotage exemption certificate is issued on the basis of the individual person and vessel type.

Ports that are not mentioned specifically in the schemas, belong to category C.
