Confidential Marine Reporting Scheme (CMRS) – Australia

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) has issued a Notice stating that it has established a Confidential Marine Reporting Scheme (CMRS).The aim of the CMRS is to improve safety in Australian waters by enabling the ATSB to receive, assess, and act on confidential reports to prevent or reduce the risks of marine accidents. The system is intended to accept reports of near-miss incidents and unsafe practices, but does not replace applicable mandatory reporting requirements.
