ISPO is a standard of best practice for maritime pilot organizations, improving safety and quality. ISPO provides self-regulation and transparency in pilotage standards to all port related stakeholders.

The total number of pilot organizations that comply with the ISPO code has risen to 35, representing approximately 1400 pilots. More and more Pilot organizations appreciate the benefits of the standard and the ISPO family is growing continuously.
