Commercial vessel operators

We are responsible for the effective day-to-day operation of the National System for Domestic Commercial Vessel Safety in Victoria under delegation from the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA).

This includes the regulation of certificates of survey, certificates of competency and certificates of safe operations for domestic commercial vessels (DCVs).

There are general safety duties for DCVs that apply to: owners, masters, crew members, passengers, vessel designers, builders and maintenance workers.

For more information about the national system, see AMSA's forms and guidance.

AMSA also provides a list of accredited marine surveyors.
