The consultation is open until  Wednesday 2 October 2019.

Marine order 63 provides information about reporting requirements for vessels travelling within Australian designated reporting areas.

The proposed new Marine order 63 (Vessel reporting systems) requires vessel position reports to be sent automatically by AIS and removes mandatory reporting points in the REEFREP system. There has also been a revision of the information required from the remaining reports prescribed to be given by masters. This change will reduce the burden on vessel masters.

Following the consultation period, it is proposed amendments to this order will come into effect on 1 January 2020.
