AMSA have released the draft fees and levies for Australian Domestic Commercial Vessel operators

DV – Levy Consultation Booklet – AMSA 2016

AMSA invites you to take part in consultation on the models proposed to recover the costs associated with AMSA delivering services to industry under the National System for Domestic Commercial Vessel Safety (the National System). The levy covers the costs of administering the National System and the fees cover the costs for delivering certification and accreditation services.
The proposed implementation date for the levy and fees is 1 July 2017, to coincide with when AMSA commences full service delivery under the National System.

The consultation process

AMSA is considering two different models for the introduction of a levy and fees for services.
AMSA is seeking your views on the proposed models from August until October 2016. During this time you will be asked to consider the impact of both models and provide your feedback.
Your response through the consultation process will provide valuable information that will help AMSA to implement the most appropriate cost-recovery system.
AMSA will collect information during the consultation period that will inform government decisions on a standardised levy and fees for services. Any information received will be used only for that purpose.

Have your say

You can provide feedback on the proposed levy models and fees through the following channels:

• Online — formal submissions can be made via the consultation page on the AMSA website www.amsa.gov.au (Home > Community > Consultation).
• Hard copy — you can print a hard copy form, or phone AMSA Connect to have a form mailed to you.

Provide your written comments and post it to: Consultation on cost recovery, GPO Box 2181, Canberra ACT 2601
The feedback must be directly relevant to the proposed levy and fees consultation process to assist government in its decision making process.
