The Standard for Commercial Marine Activities—Townsville region has been introduced to enhance the safety of commercial vessel activities in the region (Townsville, Lucinda and Abbot Point).
Compliance with this standard ensures:
- the Regional Harbour Master is aware of the commercial activities that are being undertaken within Townsville, Lucinda and Abbot Point
- allows Vessel traffic services to monitor the activities
- provides visibility of the activities for all users of the region's waterways.
