Application form for dispensation from compulsory pilotage

The Norwegian Coastal Administration may, upon application from the master of the vessel, grant a dispensation from compulsory pilotage for an individual voyage.

See application form here

This application form must be used when captain is applying for exemption from the pilotage regulation §8, in accordance with the Regulations of 17th December 2014 on compulsory pilotage and the use of Pilotage Exemption Certificates (compulsory pilotage regulations).

Dispensation may be granted if there is or will be a shortage of pilots and safety considerations indicate that dispensation may be granted, or in other cases where it is unreasonable to order a vessel to use a pilot and granting dispensation is clearly justifiable on grounds of safety.
