As noted, AMSA’s financial estimates provided do not include the activity output for the National System regulatory-based seafarer and ship safety. Given the Independent Review of Australia’s Domestic Commercial Vessel Safety legislation and associated costs, and charging, it is not possible to comment on forward years with any degree or level of accuracy, nor without legislative funding provisions. To do otherwise would be confusing and counterproductive to users of this CRIS.
