The declaration of local knowledge waters in Victoria

Closed 30 June 2016

The Marine Safety Act 2010 (Vic) outlines the local knowledge certification scheme and details its application to masters of domestic commercial vessels.

In 2014, Maritime Safety Victoria, a branch of Transport Safety Victoria,  committed to a comprehensive and state wide review of the local knowledge framework applicable to Victorian waters. The decision to review local knowledge was made recognizing that many aspects of the framework were outdated and some parts of the system had never been effectively exercised. This commitment was further strengthened as a result of recommendations made by the Coroner following a recent coronial inquest.
