Scenario 3: A DCV intends to operate commercially overseas on an ongoing basis

Follow these steps if you wish to operate your vessel commercially outside of the Australian Economic Exclusion Zone (EEZ).


A DCV that is undertaking an overseas voyage is considered a regulated Australian vessel (RAV). It must comply with the statutory certification requirements that apply to it under the Navigation Act 2012.



Note: Your vessel may be inspected by port State control when it arrives at its overseas destination.
