You must comply with this code if you are the operator of an Australian or foreign vessel that is either:

- in the internal waters of Australia
- in the territorial sea of Australia, other than in the course of innocent passage.
This standard only applies to lifts that are installed for the use of passengers and seafarers; it does not apply to cargo lifts. It lays down requirements for design, installation and inspection. It is necessary to ensure compliance with such statutory requirements, rules and regulations as may be applicable to any individual ship as well as with lift safety codes.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
