Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA)

AMSA is a government business enterprise established under the Australian Maritime Safety Authority Act 1990 (Cwlth) on 1 January 1991. AMSA is responsible, on behalf of the Commonwealth Government, for the regulation and safety oversight of Australia's shipping fleet and management of Australia's international maritime obligations. These activities include aviation and marine search and rescue, and protection of the marine environment from ship-sourced pollution, through marine environment protection services. AMSA is funded largely through levies on the shipping industry.
