Marshalling requirements


I am looking for regulations on the requirements of a marshaller when parking onto stand. Is there a general requirement for this, and if so, can you please guide me to the relevant ICAO/EASA/AIP regs?
I could only find in ICAO Annex 15 "lack of apron marshalling" is no grounds for issuing a NOTAM. However, can we as pilots park onto stand without a marshaller?

I believe there are no easa regulations on this and any requirements would be found in the AIP and / or on Jeppesen page 10-1P, or equivalent (General / Arrival / Taxi / Parking etc). In some cases this will also be regulated by your company in OM-A.

So yes, you can park without marshaller if the airport and your company allows it.

From Luton EGGW 50-1P

1.5. PARKING INFORMATION ACFT parking on all stands is only allowed with marshaller.

Tnx CaptainProp.

So you're working on the assumption that by default it necessary but it can be waived?
Our OM-A has no reference, hence the question.

Does anybody know where to find the "necessary by default" regs?

Tnx again!

If there aren't you can be sure that pages of unreadable gobbledegook will be along shortly.

We park large Boeings without any marchalling on a regular basis. Often, they are useless and clueless anyhow...

Everything is Allowed Jeroen, unless specifically forbidden in either the Airport or airline regs.

Yes we can, unless local airport restrictions require their use.

Several airports have stop lines pained which can be used by pilots to assist in stopping at the correct place, others use mirrors or SafeDock guidance etc... Using marshalers in certain airports is required due proximity of other craft and or built up areas, ensuring your safety and ensuring separation. Most airports requiring their use are restricted for space or have adjacent stands, thus this becomes a risk analysis for the operator which will include an assessment of liability should anything happen during such manoeuvre if not being guided. Remember, you cannot always see all the area around you, certainly not behind you, is clear and remains clear during such activities.

At Luton, it does indeed say that all aircraft parking require a marshaller, however, if it is an emergency landing, then you do not need a marshaller.
