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 National System for Domestic Commercial Vessel Safety is the framework within which the domestic commercial industry operates. On 1 July 2013, AMSA became the National Regulator of the framework and is responsible for the National System.
The state and territory Marine Safety Agencies, as Delegates of AMSA, are responsible for the face-to-face operations of the National System.
