Australia – focused inspection campaign on lifeboats

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) has issued Marine Notice 6/2005 stating that for the period 1 May to 31 July, it will run a focused inspection campaign on lifeboats. This campaign, conducted in conjunction with regular port state control inspections, is intended to ensure that lifeboats and their launching appliances are being properly maintained and that adequate emphasis is being given to the safe operation of this equipment.
