Consultation outcome  

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority has analysed and considered the feedback received through this consultation. The feedback received was largely in favour of the proposed changes to Marine Order 504 (Certificates of operation and operation requirements – national law) 2018 (MO504). As a result, AMSA will move forward as planned and finalise the first phase amendments to MO504. The revised MO504 instrument will be made available to industry by April 2023 and commence in August 2023.  

AMSA will deliver an information and education campaign commencing in April 2023 to raise awareness about the changes.
