Have your say—2022-23 Budget Cost Recovery Implementation Statement

Your feedback is requested to help AMSA 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.

Submissions closed 19 July 2022


Feedback has been requested from a selected group of advisory committees, industry bodies, and associations who have an interest in AMSA’s cost recovery arrangements.


The consultative 2022-23 Budget CRIS (PDF 1.92 MB) provides information on the application of cost recovery activities, including financial and non-financial performance measures. It contains financial estimates for the current 2021-22 budget, the 2022-23 budget, and three forward year estimates (2023-24 to 2025-26).

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, and
  • 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 invite stakeholders to provide feedback and comments on the consultative 2022-23 Budget CRIS, as well as existing cost recovery arrangements. Feedback will be included in the final published CRIS, expected to be uploaded onto AMSA’s website before the commencement of the budget on 1 July 2022.


Submissions can be made any time until midnight Sunday, 19 June 2022.
