Australian Maritime Safety Authority

Consultation

At the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA), we regard consultation with our stakeholders as a way to better inform the decisions we make and to improve the quality of our policies. Our organisation’s activities and stakeholder groups are diverse, and our consultation methods are tailored accordingly. Each project aims to consult with our community effectively, thoroughly and in a way that is appropriate to the community’s needs.

Consultations at AMSA

Our consultations are guided by principles set by the Australian Government’s Office of Best Practice Regulation.
These principles recommend that a consultation project:

  • be ongoing and begin early in the policy development process;
  • aim to capture a diversity of stakeholders;
  • allow stakeholders sufficient time to provide considered responses;
  • provide stakeholders with sufficient information; and
  • have its objectives clearly explained and provide feedback on how responses have been taken into consideration

Submissions can be made by any organisation or individual to the project contacts listed on this page.
Please be aware that submissions and comments provided to us may be published or made available to the public in another manner.
