2011 update


In March 2011, the ATSB followed up progress with the National Offshore Petroleum Safety Authority (NOPSA). NOPSA advised the ATSB that the Department of Resources Energy and Tourism (RET) have further considered the issue of jurisdiction between NOPSA and the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA). NOPSA is aware that RET have been discussing options with both these agencies and RET are proposing to make clarifying amendments to the relevant legislation as part of a larger reform agenda and are targeting the winter 2011 session of Parliament.
