  • improving maritime safety for shipping and small craft through regulation and education
  • minimising vessel-sourced waste and responding to marine pollution
  • providing essential maritime services such as aids to navigation and vessel traffic services

Maritime Safety Queensland is also responsible for delivering a range of services on behalf of the national regulator (the Australian Maritime Safety Authority) under the Marine Safety (Domestic Commercial Vessel) National Law Act 2012. The national system arrangements are implemented together with Maritime Safety Queensland's state marine legislative responsibilities.
