Dive boat Safe Operating Plans

Date: 1/8/2001

Recent changes to Maritime Rule Part 40A will affect operators of commercial dive boats used for recreational diving. If your boat is six metres or less in length, operating in enclosed waters or less than five miles from a safe haven, you must have a Safe Operating Plan in place, or be in a Safe Ship Management system by 1 August 2001. For more information visit the MSA’s website www.msa.govt.nz or call freephone 0800-SAFE SHIP.
