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