Ministry of Transport Consultation
Following consultation in 2017 on options to improve the financial security regime, the Ministry of Transport consulted on a draft rule amendment to Marine Protection Rule Part 102 and invited feedback from interested people and organisations. The rule has now been updated to reflect the significant cost of a major oil spill and the financial assurance that would be necessary to ensure funds are available in the event they are needed. It increases the maximum requirement for financial assurance from $600m to $800m.
