This process mandates that Nawi Island Marina must liaise accordingly with Copra Shed Marina for forward planning for the arrival and departure of these incoming ships.

This action is required based on the interest of safety and convenience of maritime navigation for the subject area pursuant to the Maritime (Mooring Buoy) Regulations 2014. Further applicable are the Maritime (Navigation Safety) Regulations 2014.
