Maritime NZ consultation on rule changes

Maritime NZ is proposing various rule amendments relating to SOLAS

The proposed rules amend Parts 23, 24B, 25, 40B, 40C, 43, 45, 53 and 90 of the Maritime Rules. The purpose of the amendments is to ensure that New Zealand law reflects changes to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) which have entered into force or are due to enter into force via the tacit amendment procedure.

Consultation will commence on Tuesday 9 February 2016 and close at 5.00pm Friday 11 March 2016.

The consultation document and online submission form are available here.
