Consultative 2021-22 Budget Cost Recovery Implementation Statement
Your feedback helped us to understand your views on current cost recovery arrangements. This will also inform future consultative activities for cost recovery, used for the upcoming national system for domestic commercial vessel safety review.
Who we wanted to hear from
Feedback had been requested from advisory committees, industry bodies and associations who have an interest in AMSA’s cost recovery arrangements.
What feedback are we looking for
The consultative 2021-22 Budget CRIS provides information on the application of cost recovery activities, including financial and non-financial performance measures. It contains financial estimates for current (2020-21), budget (2021-22), and three forward year estimates (2022-23 to 2024-25).
AMSA recovers costs through cost-recovered levies and fees for the:
- Provision of maritime navigational infrastructure and regulation to support safe ship navigation in Australian waters (excluding within port boundaries).
- Environmental marine protection, prevention, and combativeness.
- Seafarer and ship safety (primarily under Navigation Act 2012).
- Ship registration.
- Marine services under Navigation Act 2012.
- Domestic commercial vessel safety marine services.
This CRIS does not cover domestic commercial vessel safety regulatory activities, currently funded by a combination of Commonwealth government funding and contributions from State government jurisdictions. Given the upcoming review of service delivery, operating costs, and funding options of the National System, it is not possible to comment on or accurately predict the level of cost recovery for this regulatory activity.
We request stakeholders to provide feedback and comments on the consultative 2021-22 Budget CRIS, as well as existing cost recovery arrangements. Any feedback will be included in the final published CRIS, expected to be uploaded onto AMSA’s website in before the commencement of the budget year—1 July 2021.
Submissions were made anytime until midnight Sunday, 6 June 2021.
