3 1. PURPOSE Local Pilotage Directions apply to vessels navigating within the Dampier Port Authority (DPA) port limits however DPA complies with the Port Authorities Act 1999 (WA) and Port Authorities Regulations 2001 (WA) Part 3 and these documents take precedence over these Directions in the event of any conflict. Pilotage within the Port of Dampier is monitored and audited to comply with current best practice, including guidelines established by Australian Maritime Safety Authority, National Marine Safety Committee and Australian Marine Pilots Association. Present terminal and pilotage status for the Port is: Terminal Operator Berth/s Commodity Pilotage Provider Exemptions Woodside Energy Withnell Bay LNG/Condensate/LPG Woodside Energy No Woodside Energy Pluto LNG/Condensate/LPG Woodside Energy No Woodside Energy King Bay Offshore Supplies Woodside Energy BMF Offshore Supplies Argonaut Marine Group (AMG) Argonaut Marine Group (AMG) Yes Yes DPA Cargo Wharf General Cargo/Heavy Lift Argonaut Marine Group (AMG) Yes DPA BLB Bulk Liquids DPA HLO Heavy Lifts DPA ALF Construction materials Argonaut Marine Group (AMG) Argonaut Marine Group (AMG) Argonaut Marine Group (AMG) No Yes Yes DPA Barge Ramp Offshore Supplies N/A Yes Mermaid Marine Cargo Wharf Offshore Supplies/Heavy Lift Argonaut Marine Group (AMG) Yes Mermaid Marine Slipway Support Vessel Repairs Argonaut Marine Group (AMG) No BP Service Wharf Diesel Rio Tinto No Rio Tinto Parker Point Iron Ore Rio Tinto No Rio Tinto East Intercourse Island Iron Ore Rio Tinto No Dampier Salt Mistaken Island Salt in bulk Pilbara Iron No Figure 1 SHEQ-SYS-G-013 Issued Date: 26/04/2013 Rev No: 3 Page: 3 of 19

4 1.1. PORT OF DAMPIER MARINE SAFETY PLAN Dampier s Marine Safety Plan and associated entities Safety Management Systems (SMS) endeavour to reduce the risks arising from the day-to-day operations in the harbour and pilotage areas to a level as low as reasonably practical (ALARP). In September 2005 DPA commissioned Risk & Reliability Associates (R2A) in consultation with stakeholders to prepare a formal safety assessment of port hazards, assess the associated risks and evaluate control measures to minimise the risks. This risk assessment was reviewed and updated by Arup consulting in February To ensure the control measures remain valid, it is essential that all the Port s Stakeholders (Port Staff, Pilots, Pilotage Exemption Certificate (PEC) holders, Tug Masters, Agents, berth operators and recreational users) advise DPA of potential risks, which, in their opinion, could indicate a weakness in a particular control measure or risk assessment Please use individual Company Incident Report Forms to report to DPA any potential risks encountered in harbour or pilotage waters, however this process does not preclude the requirement for Pilots and PEC holders to complete an AMSA accident or incident report (form 18 or 19) as per the AMSA website Recreational vessels must report all incidents and accidents to the Department of Transport (DOT) WA as per the DOT website PORT PARAMETERS Port parameters are published for individual terminal operations and include those listed for Pilbara Iron, Woodside and Mermaid Marine. Included in these port parameters are pilotage, pilot berthing instructions, berthing drafts, sailing drafts, weather and towage restrictions. Dampier Port Authority has approved these parameters as follows: Pilbara Iron Terminal Handbook, Version 1:08 Revision 3 of 28 September Woodside Energy MSPMS Pilotage & Port Operations Procedures, Revision 7 January Mermaid Marine Port Handbook, Original Document of 12 October Each Pilotage Service Provider operates according to individual Safety Management Systems approved by DPA Current Port Parameters are also contained at the DPA web site on COMPULSORY PILOTAGE Pilotage within Dampier port limits is compulsory for the following vessels: Any vessel over 150 gross registered tonnes (GRT) or if engaged in towing, the combined GRT of tug and tow together exceeding 150 GRT. Commercial fishing vessels over 35 metres Length Overall (LOA) 1. A reference to a thing used, or capable of being used, in navigation by water, and includes a reference to: a) An air-cushion vehicle, seaplane or other similar craft; or b) A barge, lighter or other floating structure used for commercial purposes other than a structure of a class or kind prescribed for the purposes of this paragraph. 2. A thing can be a vessel for the purposes of this Act: a) No matter how it is moved or propelled; and b) Even if it is normally stationary.

5 1.4. EXEMPTIONS FROM COMPULSORY PILOTAGE The following categories of vessels shall be exempt from compulsory pilotage: Australian Defence Force vessels other than those used primarily to transport troops, fuel, stores or equipment. A vessel used for commercial fishing that is registered in Australia and has a length overall not greater than 35 m; Vessels less than 150 GRT. This includes the combined GRT of tug and tow. Vessels that: o o Are under the command of an exempt master and may be moved under cover of the exempt master s Pilotage Exemption Certificate (PEC), Are being led by another vessel under the control of a pilot in the circumstances outlined at Port Authorities Regulation 40, and o Are for the convenience of shipping in the Port or because the vessel is engaged in dredging operations, exempted by the Harbourmaster from using pilotage services PILOTAGE EXEMPTIONS Masters and Mates of specific vessels for minor terminals subject to compulsory pilotage within Dampier Port limits may apply for and be issued with Pilotage Exemption Certificates for the area or specified parts of the area, subject to their fitness and qualification both by examination and experience within the Port figure 1, page 4 refers USE OF PILOT EXEMPTION CERTIFICATES Masters of Vessels over 150GRT that wish to operate within the Port of Dampier must either have a licensed pilot on board or hold a valid Pilot Exemption Certificate (PEC). Under the Port Regulations vessels must not navigate within the pilotage area where the mate or second mate holds a valid PEC and the master does not. A licensed pilot will be required for the vessel to manoeuvre as the PEC holder is unable to act as a pilot REVOKING PILOTAGE EXEMPTION Pilotage Exemption Certificates may be revoked if considered justified by the Harbourmaster. In this event, the holder would have a right of appeal to the Dampier Port Authority PILOTAGE SERVICE PROVIDERS Pilotage services within the Port are licensed by DPA in the form of a pilotage provider s licence issued under the terms of the Port Authorities Regulations 2001 (WA) division 3. Pilotage services are provided by Woodside Energy Ltd, Pilbara Iron Pty Ltd and Argonaut Marine Solutions. 2. SCOPE These pilot directions provide guidance to masters and pilots of commercial vessels intending to operate vessels within the Dampier Port Authority waters.

PORT LIMITS Gazetted Port Limits are shown at Appendix B Charts AUS 57 and AUS 58 depict Dampier Port Limits Port Limits were last amended in 2006 and may be adjusted from time to time PILOT BOARDING LOCATIONS Masters are to exercise extreme caution in positioning their vessels while waiting on or disembarking their pilot and must make due allowance for wind and tide The Mermaid Sound (northerly approach to Port) primary pilot boarding ground is to NNW of Sea buoy. Vessels waiting for a pilot must not approach Sea buoy or depart from the pecked box area depicted on AUS chart 58 as the departure route must remain clear for deep draft vessels leaving the Port In Mermaid Sound the secondary pilotage boarding area is to the East of the Woodside Channel in approximate position S E. Generally smaller cargo vessels bound for the BLB or DCW and highly maneuverable vessels (HMV s) will be advised by the pilots to approach the secondary pilot boarding ground In Mermaid Strait (westerly approach to Port) the primary and only pilot boarding/disembarkation area is adjacent to Channel Reef or in position S E 4.3. PILOT DISEMBARKATION LOCATIONS In Mermaid Sound the primary pilot disembarkation point for deep draft vessels is north of Sea buoy and in all cases the pilot must remain onboard until the vessel is clear of all shipping and navigation hazards and has shaped up on its departure track. The Pilot must remain onboard all vessels limited in their ability to manoeuvre, such as vessels engaged in a towing operation or affected by equipment deficiencies, until seaward of Sea Buoy In Mermaid Sound the secondary pilot disembarkation point for vessels not engaged in towing operations or similarly encumbered is opposite Courtney Head but this early pilot disembarkation can only be employed under special circumstances and where: The master confirms that he has been sufficiently briefed and is confident of taking their vessel on a northerly heading between past the Sea Buoy to effect departure without any foreseeable requirement to alter course until clear of the Port. Such a situation might arise when the weather outside the Port is too rough for safe disembarkation by pilot launch. SHEQ-SYS-G-013 Issued Date: 26/04/2013 Rev No: 3 Page: 6 of 19

7 4.4. TOWAGE The vessel has no equipment deficiency. There is no shipping entering or leaving the Port likely to present any close quarter s situation if a second vessel is likely to come within two miles of the outward bound vessel during its departure then the pilot must remain on board until the vessel has shaped up on its departure track from Sea buoy. The vessel has established good communications with Port Communications and with any vessel intending to enter or leave the Port during the vessel s passage through Mermaid Sound. Disabled vessel within Port Limits or port approaches shall where ever possible be boarded by an appropriate licensed pilot who will provide expert marine advice and local knowledge to the Master and effective communications to the DPA With expanding project construction in the region, increasing numbers of barges and hoses will transit the port waters. Appropriate lights and shapes must be exhibited at all times and exempt masters must await permission from Port Communications before commencing any port transit. Tows must remain well clear of all deep draft shipping operations All masters of towing vessels are required to contact Dampier Port Communications before commencing the tow within the Port, or if entering the Port, at least four hours before being abreast of Sea buoy in Mermaid Sound or at Northwest Reefs when entering via Mermaid Strait. The master must report the name of the vessel and the towed vessel, the intended route and final destination within the port Masters of towing vessels will be required to wait off the applicable Port entrance or at the place of departure within the port if the tow will conflict with a large ship operation/s at any segment of the towage transit within port limits Appropriate towage day marks or lights as required by the Collision Regulations are to be displayed on all vessels engaged in towing and on towed vessels. Towed items such as loading hoses are difficult to see from other vessels by day and impossible by night Tows where an approved Dampier Pilot is employed may move within the Port at any time provided that the Pilot carrying out the tow has obtained a current vessel traffic briefing from Port Communications, remains well clear of deep draft shipping, and has established clear communications with other Pilots and Exempt Masters moving within the Port Oil rigs and other large vessels being towed into the port will require a licensed pilot. These movements will only be carried out during daylight hours and in agreed weather parameters except with the express permission of the Harbour Master A licensed pilot will be required for all barge movements which require the assistance of more than one tug into and out of a berth regardless of the length of the tow A licensed pilot will be required for all towage movements where the combined length of the two vessels is greater than 120 meters For further information on Towage Guidelines for the Port of Dampier please consult Appendix 1 of the Argonaut Marine Client Information Pack. This can also be viewed at VESSELS TOWING LOADING HOSES Dampier supports the offshore oil production industry and loading hoses are customarily towed through the Port for maintenance and inspection.

8 4.6. ESCORT TOWAGE from any sufficient cause it is impracticable for a vessel or object being towed to exhibit the lights or shapes prescribed in paragraph (e) or (g) of this Rule, all possible measures shall be taken to light the vessel or object towed or at least to indicate the presence of such vessel or object Escort towage is practised from the Rio Tinto and Woodside berths for deep draft and/or high risk vessels, plus for vessels departing the present BLB and proposed Pluto berths at a broad angle to the Pilbara Iron deep draft departure channel. Hensen (2003) writes that escort towage training should permit tug masters and Pilots to understand the limitations and capabilities of their available tugs in the escort mode. Planning for escort towage (with the exception of an emergency response situation) should involve the Pilot, the tug Master and Master of the escorted vessel RESTRICTED VISIBILITY AND TRAFFIC CONGESTION In the event of visibility falling below 2 miles or traffic congestion occurring or likely to occur within the Port, the Pilot boarding position for all vessels entering Mermaid Sound will be at the primary Pilot boarding area as described in Should the visibility reduce to less than half a mile, shipping movements will continue only at the Harbour Master s discretion Fog within the Port generally lasts a few hours and first indications of fog may appear over the Withnell Bay flare tower. Pilots and Pilot Exemption Certificate (PEC) holders must be prepared to markedly reduce speed in the event of reduced visibility and to anchor if necessary to ensure navigational safety. Precautions such as placing an officer on the forecastle with a hand held radio, and posting additional lookouts might be considered. Port Communications must be kept informed of all shipping movements and alterations to Port transit plans Traffic congestion within the port is increasing with growth in deep draft shipping, offshore oil and gas support vessels and other project vessel movements within the Port DEPARTING DEEP DRAFT VESSELS RIGHT OF WAY At all times, departing deep draft vessels must be afforded right of way until they are gone and clear from Dampier Port Limits From Colregs 1, a vessel constrained by her draught means a power-driven vessel which, because of her draught in relation to the available depth and width of navigable water, is severely restricted in her ability to deviate from the course she is following And: Every vessel shall at all times proceed at a safe speed so that she can take proper and effective action to avoid collision and be stopped within a distance appropriate to the prevailing circumstances and conditions And: Action taken to avoid collision with another vessel shall be such as to result in passing at a safe distance. The effectiveness of the action shall be carefully checked until the other vessel is finally past and clear And: A vessel which, by any of these Rules, is required not to impede the passage or safe passage of another vessel shall, when required by the circumstances of the case, take early action to allow sufficient sea room for the safe passage of the other vessel. 1 From AMSA Marine Order 30 Prevention of collisions, Issue 8 order no. 5 of 2009, accessed at Marine orders currently in force SHEQ-SYS-G-013 Issued Date: 26/04/2013 Rev No: 3 Page: 8 of 19

9 A vessel required not to impede the passage or safe passage of another vessel is not relieved of this obligation if approaching the other vessel so as to involve risk of collision and shall, when taking action, have full regard to the action which may be required by the Rules of this part. A vessel the passage of which is not to be impeded remains fully obliged to comply with the Rules of this part when the two vessels are approaching one another so as to involve risk of collision And: A vessel constrained by her draught shall navigate with particular caution having full regard to her special condition And: A vessel constrained by her draught may, in addition to the lights prescribed for power- driven vessels in Rule 23, exhibit where they can best be seen three all-round red lights in a vertical line, or a cylinder VESSELS CROSSING DEEP DRAFT VESSEL CHANNELS Colregs Rule 9 Narrow Channels part (d) requires that: A vessel shall not cross a narrow channel or fairway if such crossing impedes the passage of a vessel which can safely navigate only within such channel or fairway. The latter vessel may use the sound signal prescribed in Rule 34(d) if in doubt as to the intention of the crossing vessel AUTHORISED COMMUNICATIONS Pilots and Pilot Exempt Masters must maintain a listening watch on VHF Channel 11 when approaching or within Dampier Port Limits. Dampier Port Authority (Call Dampier Port Communications) is the first and primary point of contact for all marine traffic on VHF channels 11 & 16, for vessels operating near and within Dampier port limits Other port users are: Hamersley Iron (Call sign Hamersley Iron Base) monitors VHF 11 and 16, and Pilots use VHF Ch.13 and and Ch.68. Woodside (Call sign Woodside Radio or for supply boats Marine Admin) monitors VHF 11 and 16, and 82. Woodside Pilots use VHF Ch.82. Mermaid Marine (Call sign VKW567 Mermaid Base) monitors VHF 11 and 16, and working channel is 10. Ships Agents monitor VHF Ch. 11 and 16, and generally use VHF Ch All Pilots and Pilot Exempt Masters must call Dampier Port Communications and inform the duty Port Liaison Officer (PLO) of intended movements within the Port or prior to entering either Mermaid Sound or Mermaid Strait All commercial vessels intending to enter Dampier Port limits must give at least one hour s prior notice and pass estimated time of arrival (ETA) to Dampier Port Communications. Anchor position or Pilot boarding time will be confirmed during this exchange All masters of vessels over 150 GRT holding a valid PEC must quote their PEC number to Dampier Port Communications for verification and logging each time their vessel enters, maneuvers within or departs the port All vessels over 500 GRT must declare their security level status and last port, and Dampier Port Communications will respond with the Port s current MARSEC level plus other relevant information. SHEQ-SYS-G-013 Issued Date: 26/04/2013 Rev No: 3 Page: 9 of 19

10 Pilots, Pilot Exempt Masters and Masters of vessels, where applicable, entering & leaving the Port must report when passing abeam of either Sea Buoy in Mermaid Sound and North West Reefs and Channel Reef in Mermaid Strait Inbound vessels under pilotage must also report when passing abeam of specified land marks or positions as designated by the Harbour Master from time to time Pilots and Pilot Exempt Masters wishing to sail, enter or move within port limits must state their intentions to Dampier Port Communications before so doing, and should be provided with or may request information of other vessel movements that might affect their transit All vessels must advise First line, (berthing) and Last line, (departing) times to Dampier Port Communications DPA s functions are aimed at preventing vessel collisions, groundings and close quarters situations within the port approaches, harbour and deep draft channel phases of navigation. They are also intended to maximise safety, expedite ship movements, increase transportation system and logistical effectiveness, and improve all-weather operating capability. An Automatic Identification System (AIS) is integrated into DPA s operations Dampier Port Communications operation relies on position reports via VHF channel 11 from vessels approaching, transiting or departing the Port and reciprocal navigational safety information supplied by the DPA PLO All Port of Dampier navigational VHF, land telephone and AIS events are recorded by DPA s electronic system REPORTS TO HARBOUR MASTER IN DPA S PILOTAGE AREA Pilots and PEC holders who observe any significant alterations in the depths within Port Limits or approaches or an altered position of buoys marking the navigable channels, or that any navigation marks do not display their charted characteristic, are required to report the fact without delay to Dampier Port Communications Masters of vessels who are aware of any condition or circumstance that renders a vessel unseaworthy and therefore may impact upon the safe navigation of the vessel, or any other vessel in the port or the environment shall immediately notify the Harbour Master Pilots or PEC holders must immediately report any collisions, groundings, close quarter situations and any other concerns relating to safety of navigation to DPA. As well, any Master whose vessel has touched the ground or has been in collision or a close quarters situation with any other ship or any fixed or floating object shall report such occurrence to AMSA and DPA as soon as possible, and again in writing within 72 hours (on the form prescribed by AMSA) to AMSA, with copies of relevant incident report forms to DPA. Additionally, in accordance with the Port s Safety Management System, Master s are required to report to DPA any concerns they may have regarding safety of navigation in the port by forwarding a generic Company Incident Report form Following a marine incident and separate to the primary State or Federal Regulatory Authority investigation, DPA may require PEC holders to attend the Harbour Master s Office to show cause why their PEC should not be cancelled If, following an appropriate inquiry by Dampier Port Authority the Pilot or PEC holder is found to be responsible for a marine casualty or serious incident or has contravened the Dampier pilotage regulations, DPA may suspend or revoke the certificate subject to informing the Pilot or PEC holder in writing of their intention to do so under Section 57 of the Port Authorities Regulations 2001 (WA). The Pilot or PEC holder must then return his suspended or revoked certificate to DPA within 14 days whether or not the person intends to appeal.

11 4.12. INAPPROPRIATE USE OF MOBILE PHONES Both nationally and internationally there is growing concern that the use of mobile phones at inappropriate times, is distracting Bridge Management Teams from their primary duties of navigating and conning their vessel. AMSA marine notice 7/2009 emphasises the importance of Bridge Resource Management BRM especially under pilotage. A UK Marine Guidance Note 299 notes that such activity is liable to distract the attention of bridge personnel when full attention should be devoted to the safe and efficient navigation of the vessel Dampier Port Authority requires Pilots and Pilot exempt Masters to refrain from making or accepting mobile phone calls at critical phases of ship navigation, and at other times to minimise mobile phone use to essential commercial or safety matters. 5. STANDARDS AND CRITERIA FOR PILOTAGE EXEMPTION CERTIFICATES 5.1. APPLICATION FOR A PILOTAGE EXEMPTION CERTIFICATE (PEC) Masters and First Mates of vessels to which this section applies may apply for and be issued with a Pilotage Exemption Certificate for the area, or specified parts of the pilotage area, subject to their fitness and qualifications both by experience and examination Experience and Qualifications: The Master or First Mate of a vessel applying for a Pilotage Exemption Certificate shall satisfy DPA as to their experience in the pilotage area by completing a minimum number of acts of pilotage and assessment / familiarisation acts within the last six months. At least two inwards and two outwards transits must be during the hours of darkness. For the act of pilotage to be accepted for a transit in the hours of darkness the passage must commence no less than half an hour after sunset or no less than one hour before sunrise. Minimum number of transits prior to sitting for the exemption test shall be five arrivals and five departures, with berthing and departure at appropriate terminals and / or bases. The maximum number of transits that will be accepted in one operation or 24 hour period will be two arrivals and departures. Masters of vessels which access the Port of Dampier only via Mermaid Strait will be issued with an exemption which will be restricted to Mermaid Strait and a line south of 20 degrees 35 Minutes south (see appendix C). The restricted PEC holder will not be able to transit Mermaid Sound until the required number of pre requisite trips has been completed and a further examination is undertaken. Masters applying for exemption must have a Pilot for the approved number of transits into and out of the port however First Mates applying for exemption must experience the requisite number of transits whilst on duty upon the bridge while the vessel was under the control of either an exempt Master or a Pilot. Applications for Pilotage Exemption may be made by persons holding a Master Class 1 or Master Class 2 certificate of competency under the Navigation Act (Cwth) or a Master class 3 or Master Class 4 certificate of competency under the Marine Act (WA) (Refer to SHEQ-SYS-F-036 Application for Pilotage Exemption Form) Applications must contain a record of experience within the Port including: SHEQ-SYS-G-013 Issued Date: 26/04/2013 Rev No: 3 Page: 11 of 19

12 o o o Vessel s name, LOA and GRT, and Times and dates when vessel was so moved. Applicants must produce evidence that they meet the medical and eyesight requirements of AMSA Marine Orders Part 9 or overseas equivalent, i.e. those foreign nationals whose certificates of competency are recognised by AMSA. Applicants must be eligible to reside permanently in Australia under an Act of the Commonwealth Pilot Exemption Certificates for masters of vessels greater than 85 meters in length other than highly manoeuvrable vessels Masters must comply with the conditions for a Pilot Exemption Certificate set out in Additionally Masters will be required to undergo minimum of 2 check runs (one in and one out) with a licenced pilot and the Harbour Master or his delegate. Check runs will be required until an assessment of competency is made by the pilot and the Harbour Master in the same way that a pilot is assessed as competent prior to being issued with a licence or moving up in level of licence. This is to ensure that the master is not only proficient in the handling of the vessel but also with the local conditions and tugs All tug Masters providing towage services in the Port of Dampier must meet all of the requirements of the PEC as per this section. To maintain the currency of the PEC the Tug Masters must call in their PEC number to Dampier Port Communications at least once every swing Masters of vessels employed in port operations such as Hydrographic surveys, pipe laying, pile driving and dredging operations and who comply with all qualification requirements are exempt from compulsory pilotage for their vessel upon satisfactorily completing a local knowledge examination to the satisfaction of the DPA Harbour Master CONDITIONS RELATED TO THE EXAMINATION, ISSUE AND RENEWAL OF A PILOTAGE EXEMPTION CERTIFICATE Examinations shall be held in such places and at such times as the Harbour Master may direct. If a candidate fails the examination, a re-examination will not normally be scheduled within one month. If a candidate twice fails to pass the examination, any further examination shall be deferred for a period of at least 3 months from the date of the second examination. Practical onboard assessments of the candidate will be required in addition to the examination as follows: Assessment trips may be undertaken with either: o o an authorised Dampier pilot or an authorised PEC holder for the vessel for which the PEC is sought. The PEC candidate will be responsible for ensuring that the form of assessment is completed by the assessor and is forwarded to the Harbourmaster with photocopies of all documentary evidence of qualification and medical status. The examination will be conducted by the Harbour Master, his deputy, or an authorised Dampier pilot Candidates for a Pilotage Exemption Certificate shall be required to produce a current AMSA medical certificate or equivalent Certificates shall be uniquely numbered and shall include the name and description of each vessel and class or type of vessel that the certificate holder is authorised to pilot in the pilotage area. SHEQ-SYS-G-013 Issued Date: 26/04/2013 Rev No: 3 Page: 12 of 19

13 Certificate holders shall not allow any other person to have possession, or make improper use of the Pilot Exemption Certificate Certificate holders shall conform strictly to all local pilotage requirements PEC VALIDITY Upon application for renewal, candidates will be required to produce updated written medical and eyesight evidence at intervals specified in accordance with the normal requirements for marine officers in the country in which their vessel is registered If an exempt master does not move a vessel under the authority of his PEC for a period of six months, the PEC expires at the end of that period It is the responsibility of all PEC Masters and First Mates to call Dampier Port Communications on VHF channel 11 at arrival or departure with names and PEC numbers of those on duty upon the bridge during the transit, for their certificates to be revalidated on DPA s data base. Maintaining PEC currency is a personal responsibility The number of trips required to renew an expired exemption will continue to be assessed on a case by case basis by the Harbour Master. This assessment will take into account the length of time since the PEC has expired and the experience of the PEC holder. At a minimum the requirement for revalidation will be two trips in and out and at least one each way during the hours of darkness SYLLABUS FOR PILOTAGE EXEMPTION CERTIFICATE EXAMINATION Applicants for a Pilotage Exemption Certificate are to familiarise themselves with the following general local knowledge subjects: The limits of the Dampier Port Authority Pilotage area as defined in the attachment, Vessels exempt from compulsory pilotage in the area, Pilot boarding places location and details of vessels using them, Reporting points for vessels inward and outward throughout and adjacent to the Port, and Candidates require a satisfactory knowledge Dampier Local Marine Notices, Notices to Mariners and marine emergency procedures in force with respect to the pilotage area for which a Pilotage Exemption Certificate is sought. Candidates must be familiar with the communications and vessel traffic procedures within the pilotage area. Duties of a Pilotage Exemption Certificate holder Candidates must have a satisfactory working knowledge of the English language Applicants general navigation knowledge requirements will include the application to pilotage of: International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea; International Association of Lighthouse Authorities (IALA) Maritime Buoyage System A General principles and rules; Appropriate Port of Dampier Bye-Laws, Regulations and Directions for Navigating in the Pilotage area; Communication procedures and protocols; AMSA Marine Orders relating to pilotage; and SHEQ-SYS-G-013 Issued Date: 26/04/2013 Rev No: 3 Page: 13 of 19

ESTIMATED TIME OF ARRIVAL (ETA) AT PILOT BOARDING STATION Vessels bound for Dampier and requiring the services of a pilot on arrival shall give Dampier Port Communications, agents and the appropriate terminal operators at least 24 hours advance notification, including the ship s estimated time of arrival, maximum draft and destination within the pilotage area Dampier Port Communications may be passed this information through normal ship agency channels, or by telephone on (08) , fax (08) and A further estimated time of arrival shall be sent direct by VHF channel 11 (call sign Dampier Port Communications) no later than 3 hours before arrival at the pilot boarding point, and VHF contact maintained for updates or variation to the ETA ADVICE RE DEPARTURES Departing vessels or vessels moving within the Dampier Pilotage area that have booked the services of a pilot shall give relevant Pilots at least 3 hours notice of their estimated time of departure (ETD) If pilotage involving a tow is required (e.g. oil rigs) maximum advance notice is required to ensure that suitable facilities and traffic management planning can be arranged BOARDING & DISEMBARKATION OF PILOTS IN ADVERSE WEATHER CONDITIONS Pilot boats will only put to sea when their services can be performed safely when weather conditions are marginal this may entail having the ship follow the pilot boat under the Pilot s instruction until weather conditions have abated sufficiently or sufficient shelter is obtained for the Pilot to board During adverse weather, Masters should confirm with Dampier Port Communications on VHF 11 that their pilot is en route to their vessel (by either helicopter or pilot boat) before an attempt is made to approach the boarding station Under all circumstances, it is essential for Masters to give timely advance notice of their need for Pilot services FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH ETA / ETD REQUIREMENTS Vessels failing to provide an ETA or ETD, and in the required format, may be delayed in the event of a pilot not being available In the case of vessels that have given an ETA / ETD and where a pilot has boarded, if a subsequent delay is caused by the vessel beyond 30 minutes other than for navigational and weather considerations, an ETA / ETD detention surcharge may be applied to the cost of pilotage for that vessel, (for details refer to relevant terminal pilotage rates).

THE USE OF A SECOND PILOT Tankers when using escort towage to Sea buoy and exceeding 60,000 DWT, may, subject to appropriate assessment, be required to carry an assistant who is also an authorised pilot Bulk cargo vessels, vessels with special requirements or those using escort towage to Sea buoy may, subject to appropriate assessment, be required to carry an assistant who is also an authorised pilot On all vessels a second Pilot who is also an authorised pilot may be required due to peculiarities of ship construction, for example shortened bridge wings or lack of centreline compass, or defects in critical navigational equipment such as gyro or radar On all vessels a second Pilot who is also an authorised pilot may be required where the deck cargo severely reduces the visibility from the bridge.
