Legislation is being developed in many areas which places requirements on Ports and Port Authorities to monitor Vessels movements, Environmental impact and Security issues. This has come about at a time when Ports are facing increasing commercial pressures and growing volumes of traffic.

To balance these pressures there is information accumulating that through the use of Port Information Systems, Port Authorities can both meet legislative requirements and improve commercial management. This may be obtained through a range of operational improvements including, improved collection conservancy and pilotage fees, better berth management streamlined reporting of data where multiple legislative recipients are designated.

I hope you will find time to assist us with this survey on the current views within the Industry on the impact of these changes.

The composite results of the survey will be supplied to any respondent upon request, naturally all commercial and personal information will be kept confidential.
