New rules for commercial vessels in Australian waters
29 May 2018
From 1 July 2018, there will be one system to navigate for domestic commercial vessels (DCVs).
Recreational vessel operators will not be affected.
The changes affect DCV owners, operators, and crew.
You’ll get your certificates of survey and operation and crew qualification from the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA).
You will also access a range of other maritime services including permits, exemptions, and equivalent means of compliance.
As well as new services, you may experience other changes depending on your type of operation or the work you do.
