The Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji, better known as MSAF is a new Commercial Statutory Authority, that acts as a regulator, responsible for Fijis maritime safety; protection of the marine environment animg4d regulation of search and rescue, and hydrographical services.


MSAF is implementing major reforms as it transitions from a government department to a commercial statutory authority working more closely with a wider range of stakeholders and interest groups to raise the profile of safety at sea and marine environment protection obligations


The Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji Decree 2009 (Decree No. 2 of 2010) [legal notice 121] was gazetted on 9th November 2011, with a commencement date of 1st January 2011, heralding in the commencement of The Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji (MSAF).


MSAF is well progressed with the review of the Marine Act 1986. The Maritime Transport Decree and the Ship Registration Decree will supersede the Marine Act. Both maritime decrees incorporate the 7 International Maritime Organisation obligations that were endorsed by Cabinet in May 2012, and the International Labour Organisation obligation that was endorsed in Cabinet in June this year.

The MSAF is committed to fully engage itself with the ongoing support of the maritime industry stakeholders and the public ensuring safe vessels and clean seas.
