Recreational Vessel Safety Equipment Review Survey

The Department of Transport (DoT) is seeking your feedback on proposed changes to safety equipment requirements for recreational vessels in WA.

The proposals are the result of initial consultation by DoT in March 2017 following the release of a discussion paper. The 1,200 submissions received were carefully considered by DoT together with an external reference group formed to guide the review process.

The new Recreational Vessel Safety Equipment Review Position Paper is available on the Department’s website and details proposed changes to requirements.

Survey closes 22 November 2019.
