Buoyage and navigation

Many collisions between vessels result from a lack of understanding of the rules of safe navigation.

This section has information on the buoyage systems used in Victoria; the vessel navigation lights operators are required to display; and standard marine radio procedures.

The information in this section based on the requirements of the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea 1972 (COLREGS), Marine Safety Act and Marine Safety Regulations.
