On 1 April 2011 changes to pilotage requirements for Pilotage Exemption Certificate (PEC) holders were introduced by Maritime New Zealand (MNZ) following widespread consultation with industry.
As part of the PEC application, you will be required to undertake training in accordance with an Approved PEC Training Programme and pass a practical, written and oral PEC examination. You will need to contact the local Harbourmaster for details. Once you have successfully completed the examination, the Harbourmaster will send a letter confirming this to MNZ. You should then apply to MNZ for a PEC.
Read these guidelines below for all the requirements when applying for a PEC.
