Part 9 Rhode Island State Pilotage Commission Rules and Regulations
Type of Filing Amendment
Regulation Status Active
Effective 08/08/2016 to 12/31/2018

Regulation Authority :

RIGL 46-9 and 46-9.1

Purpose and Reason :

The first proposed amendment is an effort to update Regulation 12.03 (B) (1)&(2) by expanding from 30,000 gross weight tonnage to 35,000 gross weight tonnage those vessels that a probationary pilot is authorized to pilot. The second proposes an amendment of Rule 15.13 which would increase by 2% on January 1, 2017 the pilotage rate, increase by 2% on January 1, 2018 and increase by 2% on January 1, 2019. The third proposed amendment proposes the deletion of Rule 15.15 (E) of the regulations governing pilot fatigue. The only change (other than typos) resulting from the hearing process was to Section 15.13. The regulations as proposed provided for an increase in the pilotage fee in the amount of 2% per annum beginning on January 1, 2017, on January 1, 2018, and on January 1, 2019. The Commission opted to modify the final regulations by reducing the increase from 2% on January 1, 2017, 2% on January 1, 2018, and 2% on January 1, 2019, to provide for an increase of 2% on January 1, 2017, 1% on January 1, 2018, and 2% on January 1, 2019.
