ABSTRACT
The article discusses how the Australian operators of commercial vessels are dealing with Classification Societies under Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) and being Classed through a member of the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS). It compares the lower fees paid under the USL Code and the high fees charged by IACS for survey and plan approval. It cites a suggestion made to AMSA for a second tier Classification Societies for domestic vessels for an acceptable standard plan of approval and survey of domestic vessels.
