This is a very good initiative from a class society. IMPA survey shows almost no reporting on pilot ladder non compliances, where almost 60% vessels calling Indian Ports are non -complaint in PTA. now AIMPA is looking for to Indian Administration to issue a Marine notice to this effect where more force will be given to these inspections. Indian administration has already promised AIMPA to start focused inspection on all vessels calling Indian ports from March 2021. We welcome this move.
