Legislation and regulations
How we apply the legislation that governs our maritime industry.
What we do touches the lives of many New Zealanders, as well as international visitors and sea-borne traffic – on a daily basis.
This is true whether you are a recreational boatie, a commercial operator, port authority, certified seafarer, or a regional council responding to an oil spill.
Our maritime environment is vital to New Zealand’s prosperity, security and social wellbeing – providing valuable employment, trade, tourism and recreational opportunities.
