MARITIME Safety Authority of Fiji will undertake industry consultation as part of the review of the maritime laws of Fiji next month.

The industry consultation would be on the 26 draft regulations such as the cargo stowage regulation, specific goods regulation, dangerous goods regulation, ballast water management, jet ski and recreation boating regulation, logbook regulation, ships lifting appliances regulation, investigation and inquiry regulation.

MSAF chief executive officer Neale Slack said the consultation would be undertaken with industry stakeholders in the eastern, western and northern divisions.

Mr Slack said MSAF would notify industries and stakeholders on the consultation dates for Vanuabalavu, Tubou and Rotuma in due course.

He said draft copies of the regulations were available on the MSAF website or in CD copies from MSAF offices around Fiji.

"In the following days, MSAF would highlight provisions in the regulations commencing with the draft cargo stowage regulations, the draft specific goods regulation and the draft dangerous good regulations," he said.

The three draft regulations dealt with cargo carried on ships and stowage and securing requirements.

Consultation meetings for the Central Division would be at Muaiwalu House conference room in Suva on March 12 and at the Rewa Provincial House in Nausori on March 13.
