Vessels & operators

Vessels in Australia being used for any commercial, government or research activity must be compliant with Australian standards and regulations.

As the national regulator, we are responsible for the safety of domestic commercial vessels and making sure your obligations as an owner or operator are clear and easy for you to meet.

Find out what you need to do to keep your vessel compliant. Consider registering your vessel, work out if and when you need to have your vessel inspected, and make sure you know how to operate your vessel in a marine environment.
