Pilotage concerns in Mexico

We would like to issue the following advisory to all INTERTANKO members that are trading to Mexico. It has come to our attention that some pilots in Mexico may not be fully trained in accordance with IMO guidelines and procedures as outlined in IMO Resolution A960 "Training & Certification of Marine Pilots".  

We have contacted Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Transportes in Mexico and raised our concerns and have received the response (click here to view). We are most grateful for the reply and sincere efforts in this regard.
