The cost of entering into MOSS
This table below gives estimations only of what operators could, on average, expect to pay to enter into MOSS.
|Operation size||Estimated time taken||Estimated total cost
[includes fixed fee of $728]
|Single vessel||4–11 hours||$1,797–$3,668|
|Two vessels||5–13 hours||$2,101–$4,181|
|10 vessels||9.5–21.5 hours||$3,252–$6,401|
|50 vessels||31–63 hours||$8,833–$17,451|
The low end of these numbers indicates a compliant operator, with a simple operation, a comprehensive operator plan with which the operator can demonstrate familiarity, and a straightforward site visit requiring no follow-up work by Maritime NZ.
The high end indicates likely costs for a complex operation, with an operator plan not understood or demonstrated well by the operator. The plan may require re-working, and on the site visit, the operator may not be familiar with their procedures as outlined in their plan.
