You require this certificate if you intend to operate a commercial vessel in Australian waters. A commercial vessel is any vessel that is used for commercial, government or research activities.
This certificate is required for:
- all new vessels
- vessels that have had their class or specification changed
- vessels that have been significantly modified
- vessels that have not previously held valid certification.
Please note that your vessel may have to undergo a safety and construction check before it will be certified.
If you plan to operate a vessel commercially in NSW's waters you are advised to contact the NSW Marine Safety Agency for relevant information.
