This National Compliance Plan gives regulated maritime industries and our compliance partner’s insight into the compliance areas we will focus our efforts during 2021-22. Outlining our priorities in advance will allow industry to review their operations to ensure compliance with relevant legislation.
Our commitment is for a consistent, intelligence-led, and risk-based approach to compliance that underpins our decision-making and allows for better collaboration with maritime communities. Our compliance program will be iterative and informed by compliance trends and safety data to encourage voluntary compliance, continuous improvement, and greater confidence in safety outcomes.
We will be open, transparent and accountable for our actions. We will report on our regulatory performance and where we have adjusted our focus, we will explain our reasons in the National Compliance Plan annual report.
Detailed compliance performance reporting can be found in the following annual reports.
