RE: UPDATE FOR AUSTRALIA IN RELATION TO FOCUSED INSPECTION CAMPAIGN TO BE CONDUCTED BY THE AUSTRALIAN MARITIME SAFETY AUTHORITY ("AMSA") IN EARLY 2022
Shipowners, operators and Masters should be aware that AMSA will be conducting a focused inspection campaign on planned maintenance from 15 January to 30 March 2022 for the purposes of determining compliance with maintenance requirements of international conventions.
The campaign will apply to foreign flagged vessels and regulated Australian vessels arriving at Australian ports and will be undertaken in conjunction with normal port or flag State control inspections.
Any deficiencies found will be reported to regional port state control databases.
During the campaign inspectors will complete a checklist and AMSA will collate and report on the outcomes.
