Australian Maritime Safety Authority

National System for Domestic Commercial Vessel Safety

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) is responsible for ensuring the safety of vessels, and the seafarers onboard, operating in the Australian domestic commercial industry.

The state and territory Marine Safety Agencies, as Delegates of AMSA, are responsible for the face-to-face operations of the National System.

Streamlining consultation

AMSA recently consulted industry on thirteen streamlining concepts related to the National System for domestic commercial vessels. The aim is to make both the safety rules and following them simpler. During May and June 2014, AMSA conducted a number of streamlining information sessions around Australia.

Please read the detailed report on the feedback received during those information sessions.

For further information on the streamlining concepts and consultations, please visit the Streamlining Information Sessions page.
