Our Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) Compliance and Enforcement Policy outlines the regulatory requirements for VTS in Australia and the compliance and enforcement powers available to achieve the objectives of the legislation. 

This policy is supplementary to AMSA’s overarching compliance and enforcement policy.

VTS authorities assist mariners meet their obligations within their VTS area by promoting co-operative compliance with VTS requirements.
