Australian Maritime Safety Authority

Regulated Australian Vessels

Under section 15 of the Navigation Act 2012, a Regulated Australian Vessel (RAV) is any Australian vessel that:

  • is registered or required to be registered under the Shipping Registration Act 1981;
  • is not a recreational vessel; and
  • if any of the following applies:
    • operates on overseas voyages, that is any voyage beyond the Australian Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ),
    • has a valid certificate issued under the Navigation Act 2012, except the following; a Tonnage Certificate, all pollution certificates, Anti-Fouling System Certificate or Declaration of Maritime Labour Compliance (DMLC) Part I or II;
    • an opt-in declaration is in force.

Vessels that may be declared not to be a Regulated Australian Vessel

Prior to 1 July 2013, some vessels received certification by Australian state and territory maritime authorities to operate up to 600nm from the Australian baseline; this is in some areas beyond the EEZ which means they are subject to the Navigation Act 2012, rather than the Marine Safety (Domestic Commercial Vessel) National Law Act 2012.

Using section 19 of the Navigation Act 2012, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) may declare these vessels that have this certification permitting domestic operations beyond the EEZ, not to be a RAV. These vessels will then be subject to the Marine Safety (Domestic Commercial Vessel) National Law Act 2012.

Vessels seeking a declaration that it is not a RAV must write to AMSA and provide a copy of the current and valid certificate issued by the Australian state or territory maritime authority.

                        GPO Box 2181
                        Canberra City  ACT 2601

By email:         FSC team at AMSA

The following conditions will apply to vessels issued a declaration under section 19 of the Navigation Act 2012:

  • The vessel can only operate up to 600nm from the Australian baseline, subject to the limitations below, provided it complies with the requirements of the National Standard for Commercial Vessels for such operations;
  • The vessel must not enter a port of another country, the territorial waters of another country or the EEZ of another country.
  • When the certificate of survey identified in the declaration expires, a new certificate must be obtained in accordance with Marine Order 503 (Certificates of survey — national law) 2013 of the Marine Safety (Domestic Commercial Vessel) National Law Act 2012 for “extended offshore operations’ within the limits identified in the declaration.

AMSA will revoke a declaration if:

  • The vessel owner subsequently applies for a certificate for the vessel covered by section 15(1)(c)(ii) of the Navigation Act 2012;
  • The vessel changes the nature of the operation detailed in the certificate of operation issued for the vessel under the Marine Safety (Domestic Commercial Vessel) National Law Act 2013; or
  • The vessel does not comply with the conditions of the declaration (see above).
