The move to a full national service delivery model will improve safety by making it easier for operators, crew, boat builders, architects, surveyors, marine safety officers and inspectors to maintain safe vessels and operating practices.
For owners, operators and crew of domestic commercial vessels this means that in addition to a single set of rules around the country, from 1 July 2018 people will pay the same fees for services no matter where they are around Australia. Some local waterway services will continue to be provided by state and territory marine safety agencies.
Overview of our services from 1 July 2018
Existing national system services will continue
These services will continue to be delivered by us in the lead up to, and post 1 July 2018.
Access to services until 30 June 2018
Please continue to access services from your local marine safety agency. We will let you know when there are changes and when you need to take any action.
Transfer of services
We are continuing to work with state and territory marine safety agencies for a smooth transfer of services so you can continue to access the services you need, when you need them.
