Overview

Marine safety fees under Part 13 of the Marine Safety Regulations 2012 are due to expire on 8 July 2021.

In line with this, the Department of Transport has reviewed the regulatory fees contained in the Marine Safety Regulations 2012. The Department of Transport released draft proposed Regulations and invited feedback and submissions on the proposed marine safety fees.

In addition to the proposed Regulations, a Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) is available below.

The Department is recommending that marine safety fees proposed under the Marine Safety (Fees) Regulations 2021 remain unchanged.
