On 27 April 2017 the Commission recommended that the Director of Maritime New Zealand draw surveyors' and vessel owners’ attention to the benefits of installing safety mechanisms designed to alert crew to any abnormal rises in water levels in compartments, particularly those compartments that compromise the reserve buoyancy or stability of fishing vessels.

A safety bulletin will be prepared to draw attention to surveyors, vessel owners and operators of the benefits of installing safety mechanisms designed to alert crew of any abnormal rises in water levels in compartments, particularly those compartments that compromise the reserve buoyancy of stability of fishing vessels.

The safety bulleting will be published on the MNZ website by the end of May 2017. All surveyors will be notified when it is available. Vessel owners and operators will be advised through our normal communications process.
