Marine safety issues and actions
Recommendation issued to: Australian Maritime Safety Authority
|Date issued:||20 November 2007|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
The Australian Maritime Safety Authority did not appropriately assess the risks associated with the leakage of dangerous goods on board Kota Pahlawan until 19 June 2006, more than one day after the master had reported it and before the ship started its transit of the Great Barrier Reef Inner Route.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that the Australian Maritime Safety Authority take action to address this safety issue.
