Exemptions from the domestic commercial vessel National Law

The National Law allows the National Regulator, in certain cases, to grant exemption from the National Law or parts of the National Law.

The National Law includes the National Law, the Marine Safety (Domestic Commercial Vessel) National Law Regulation 2013 (National Law Regulation), and Marine Orders made under the National Law. The National Standard for Commercial Vessels (NSCV) and other technical standards do not legally form part of the National Law. Rather, the National Law requires compliance with the NSCV and other applicable standards. 

This policy applies to persons applying for an exemption.
