AMSA and MSQ sign REEFVTS Strategic Plan
The Strategic Plan builds on previous strategies and also takes into account the commitments made in 2014 by the Australian and Queensland governments in their Reef 2050 Long Term Sustainability Plan, and the North-East Shipping Management Plan.
REEFVTS is operated under joint arrangements between AMSA and Maritime Safety Queensland (MSQ).
Its purpose is to:
- Enhance navigational safety by providing shipping with improved information on potential traffic conflicts and other navigational safety hazards
- Minimise the risk of maritime accident and the consequential ship-sourced pollution and damage to marine environment
- Help coordinate and facilitate a rapid response in the event of a safety or pollution incident.
