National Standard for Commercial Vessels (NSCV) - Australian Government

Description

The National Standard for Commercial Vessels (NSCV) is the principal technical standard for commercial vessels and will gradually replace the Uniform Shipping Laws (USL) Code. It provides a common national standard for the design, construction, crewing and operation of vessels.

State-based legislation specifies the standards applying to commercial vessels. The NSCV is being introduced progressively in all jurisdictions.

Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
