In conjunction with the Ministry of Transport, critically review the maritime rule-making process to identify if there are areas where the timeliness of new and amended rules can be improved.

The nature of the rules contract between Ministry of Transport and Maritime New Zealand was independently reviewed in late 2007 to establish what opportunities there were to make the process more timely and effective. The results of that review are in the course of being implemented by the Ministry of Transport.

The Ministry of Transport is also currently seeking Cabinet approval to implement several recommendations from recent independent reviews of the transport rules programmes undertaken by Mary Scholtens QC and Richard Clarke QC.
