In July 2013, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) issued Marine Notice 11/2013 to draw industry attention to this accident and request that appropriate action be taken should such a system be encountered. A copy of this notice is included with this report as Appendix A.
AMSA informed the ATSB that information regarding this accident had been passed to other marine regulators around the world and that all ships subjected to a Port State Control (PSC) visit by AMSA surveyors are provided with a digital copy of all current Marine Notices, including this one.
AMSA also stated that this Marine Notice was in the process of being updated as a result of this investigation. The updated version of this Marine Notice and all other current Marine Notices are available at the AMSA website: www.amsa.gov.au
