MNZ was seeking feedback on three options for the second-half of the six year Levy period covering the amount of revenue sought and how the levy is applied.
Several pieces of work provided input into this review of the Levy. These include:
- A refresh of the New Zealand Marine Oil Spill Readiness and Response Strategy to the 2018 – 2022 version (the Strategy)
- A refresh of the Marine Oil Spill Risk Assessment (MOSRA 18) incorporating the latest data and improvements in modelling capabilities to re-assess risk matters and consequently sector shares of risk
- A review of the Capability Plan, to ensure it remains valid and appropriate
- A re-forecast of expected activity levels (projecting forward the latest data available) for the period from July 2019 to June 2022.
