The National Compliance Plan gives our regulated maritime industries and compliance partners insight into the compliance areas we will focus our efforts on during 2023-24. Outlining our priorities in advance will allow industry the opportunity to review their operations to ensure compliance with relevant legislation.

Our commitment is for a consistent, intelligence-led, and risk-based approach that underpins our compliance activities and allows for better collaboration with our maritime communities. Our compliance program is informed by safety data and trends to ensure we focus on what matters and encourage voluntary compliance and continuous improvement, leading to 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.

Detailed compliance performance reporting can be found in the following annual reports.

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) is the national Commonwealth Government agency responsible for maritime safety, protection of the marine environment, and search and rescue.
