Feedback sought on insurance applicant guidelines for offshore installations

22 February 2018

Maritime NZ is seeking feedback on guidelines for owners of offshore installations obtaining insurance cover.

The consultation is part of the implementation of Marine Protection Rules Part 102 (Part 102). The Ministry of Transport is also seeking feedback on the draft rule.

The draft guidelines provide practical guidance on obtaining appropriate insurance cover or other financial security, and navigating the certification process for obtaining certificates of insurance.

The guidelines also include the framework that the Director of Maritime NZ will use for determining an owner’s financial assurance requirements under Part 102.

We invite interested people and organisations to provide feedback on the draft guidelines by 5 pm on 20 March 2018.
