NEW AGREEMENT TO ENHANCE TANKER SAFETY.
A Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) has been signed by Graham Westgarth, Chairman of INTERTANKO; Ricardo Augusto Leite Falcao, President of the Brazilian Maritime Pilots' Association (CONAPRA); and Otavio Augusto Fragoso Alves da Silva, President of the Brazilian National Pilots Federation (FENAPRATICOS).
This MoA is part of the process of improving cooperation and constructive dialogue between these two associations and their members, enhancing navigational safety and protecting the marine environment in Brazilian waters.
Meetings between INTERTANKO, CONAPRA and FENAPRATICOS to discuss issues of mutual interest have given rise to an improved relationship, where those involved enjoy a cooperative approach to common issues. This has been the key to moving towards the associations' mutual goal which is the continuous improvement of navigational safety.
