The associations recognize and respect the responsibilities of their respective members and the indispensible roles played by the pilot and ship’s officers in the safe, environmentally sound and efficient seaborne transportation of oil, gas and chemicals. Recognizing the importance of working together in operational and technical areas of common interest, the parties agree to develop and enhance this cooperation by means of these memoranda.
