Flag (Fedepiloti): the self-handler finds a its natural limit in safety

To light of Regolamento EU on the harbour services - it has emphasized the president of the Federation - "evince once again the legitimized discipline of the services of pilotage articulated in our ordering"

On safety of the maneuvers of the ships of the ports and on the necessity to continue to assure it through the job of the pilots of the ports being avoided forms of self-handler by the navigation companies the today's assembly to Rome of the Italian Federation has centralized itself Pilots of the Ports (Fedepiloti), with a look also to the happened effectiveness 24th March of European Regolamento n. 352 of the 2017 that institutes a normative picture for the supply of harbour services, included the services of pilotage, and common norms in transparency matter financial institution of the ports.

Speaking about the topic of the self-handler, the president of Fedepiloti, commander Francesco Bandiera, have evidenced that the pilots, when they get aboard of a ship, have a twofold objective: besides protecting the interests more that he legitimizes of the shipowners - he has emphasized – more important of the general interest of the State is "that still through the safeguard of the human life in sea, the material and environmental assets, and is only the composition of these two interests - has specified Flag - that he must be realized guaranteeing safety of the ports and harbour waters".

Flag has rimarcato that the self-handler finds a its natural limit own in safety. "Nevertheless - the president has complained of Fedepiloti - next the 8 of May we will be to Palermo, by themselves, to defend the system of the Italian pilotage near the administrative law council own in a cause on the self-handler named from a private operator who has found a regional public marine transport, in regime of monopoly, financed with public funds destined also to guarantee safety in the ports through the corrected one I use of the technical-nautical services".

About European Regolamento 352/2017, Flag has remembered that the norm "recepisce the requirement to institute and to maintain services totally regulated in the ports of the Member States when they agree to pursue pubblicistici interests between which harbour safety. Such action by right derivative of the European Union, in fact - it has found - does not have some hesitation to allow with the Member States to impose requisitioned minimums to the supply of the service, let alone limitations to the number of lenders, in pre-eminent reasons of obligation of public service". "In the light of these principles - it has observed the president of Fedepiloti - evince once again the legitimized discipline of the services of pilotage articulated in our ordering, that it characterizes an only lender of service for port, own in order to satisfy requirements of synergy in the performance of the universal service to the generality of the users, but in particular inserted requirements of safety with to requirements of economic efficiency".

In its participation the minister of Infrastructures and the Transports, Danilo Toninelli, has been said from the same part of Fedepiloti and its president Bandiera: "it is right and he is I legitimize - he has asserted - that is a competition between the shipowners, between the great entrepreneurs of the field, but the competition - has specified Toninelli - does not have to enter in competition with safety". "I do not want neither far - it has added the minister - to feel to speak about a privatization of a harbour system of safety, that a greater speed in safety in arriving in port and exiting from the port affords".
