Services and activities for domestic commercial vessels
From 1 July 2018 we will commence delivery of most services under the National System for Domestic Commercial Vessel Safety.
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.
