As a leading Government Agency working within the marine sector, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) has national and international responsibilities for seafarer welfare. AMSA acknowledges the important measures that must be taken to combat modern slavery in this sector including all associated supply chains.
AMSA is aware that modern slavery can occur in any industry and that modern slavery risks must be recognised so that business may not exploit individuals for profit. AMSA is committed to ensuring that our procurement practices and all dealings with the maritime community support supply chains that protect the rights of workers.
AMSA is an advocate for combatting modern slavery and ensuring awareness about this important issue. This Statement is a key measure to address modern slavery and other harmful practices and sets out the actions and steps implemented by AMSA to address modern slavery risks.
