If your tender vessel is involved in a marine incident, it needs to be reported. Reportable marine incidents such as, person overboard, collisions, capsize, foundering, and injuries amongst others must be reported. Reports assist us to respond quickly and efficiently to an incident when it occurs.
In some circumstances we may use the information provided to support an investigation—however this is done with the intention of ensuring that appropriate control measures are being implemented to prevent re-occurrence of incidents. Serious non-compliance with the National Law requirements may result in compliance action. The real value of incident reporting and the resulting analysis is the development of more effective safety strategies and advice for owners, operators and seafarers to avoid similar events in the future.
