It will be dedicated to raising public awareness, where pilotage organisations, harbour authorities and port users are invited to attend to gain a better insight into the ISPO standard and to what it means to be certified. It will also feature presentations and discussions tackling the challenges of piloting within Gulf coast countries and risk management.
