NZ Pilots Association and NZ Merchant Service Guild sought the declaratory judgment after Maritime NZ indicated an experienced mariner who did not hold a Master certificate could enter a training programme to become a Marine Pilot.
Maritime NZ, New Zealand’s shipping safety agency, announced the opening of a consultation on 6 November, on changes to the maritime levy and fees. Among others, the agency is considering changing seafarer certification fees that currently range from $372 to $1105 to a fee of $368, with the balance from the Maritime Levy.
Maritime New Zealand issued an infographic, focusing on seafarers’ fatigue, as the root cause of many marine accidents. A number of things can lead to fatigue, including long or irregular work hours, sleep disruption, extreme environmental conditions, physical and mental work demands, and stress.
Maritime New Zealand reminds that ILO Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) will apply to New Zealand ships from 9 March 2017. After this date, Maritime NZ will be able to inspect for compliance with the Convention on foreign-flagged ships in New Zealand ports.
