Marine order 503—Existing vessel transitional vessel concept flowchart

5 February 2018

From 1 January 2018, domestic commercial vessel (DCV) owners can make certain changes to their 'existing vessel' without having to meet all the standards that apply to a 'new vessel'. Eligible vessels will become a 'transitional vessel'.

The transitional vessel concept flowchart provides guidance on the kinds of changes that will result in an existing vessel becoming a transitional vessel and the standards that will apply to the vessel.
