Protection Zone Installation Permit - Australian Government

Description

You will require this permit if you intend to install submarine telecommunications cabling in a protection zone within Australia's Exclusive Economic Zone (Australian Waters).

A submarine cable means:

  • A domestic submarine cable
  • An international submarine cable.

A Protection Zone permit (PZ) is required for proposed installations within areas that have been declared as protection zones. From the low-water mark to a water depth of 2000 metres is considered a protection zone. If you install any part of the cable outside of a protection zone then you will be required to also apply for a separate permit called a Non-Protection Zone permit.

The Agency has advised that all protection zones are marked on relevant hydrographic charts.
