MNZ, along with other agencies and industry bodies, is busy implementing the Government’s decisions from the 2009/10 review of safety in adventure and outdoor commercial activities.

Principal Maritime Advisor John Mansell completed a six-month project aimed to help address some of these issues in the Kingdom of Tonga.

Amended maritime rules are now in force to give effect to New¬†Zealand’s obligations as a party to the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW).

Changes to Maritime Rules Part 40D, relating to the design, construction and equipment on fishing ships, are likely to come into effect later this year.

Some certificates are only valid for a certain period and have an expiry date. Find out if this applies to you.
