Maritime Rules 21
Part 21 is divided into two sections.
- Section 1 incorporates the SOLAS 74 Chapter IX requirement that ship owners implement a shore-based and shipboard safe management system in compliance with the International Safety Management Code.
- Section 2 requires ships be in an approved Safe Ship Management system managed and approved by the Director of Maritime NZ for that purpose.
Changes to Part 21 from 1 July 2014 - Section 2, Appendix 5 and Appendix 6 of Part 21 were revoked on 1 July 2014.
While Maritime Rules Part 21 is partially revoked by Maritime Rules Part 19, section 2 of Part 21 continues to apply to maritime transport operators who are operating under a deemed Maritime Transport Operator Certificate (the Safe Ship Management Certificate held prior to 1 July 2014) after 1 July 2014 (and whose vessels are being operated under a deemed Certificate of Survey) until their deemed Maritime Transport Operator Certificate expires.
If you are a maritime transport operator operating under a deemed Maritime Transport Operator Certificate after 1 July 2014, please refer to this consolidation of Part 21, which includes the revoked sections.
Current version of Part 21
This rule is made up of:
- Section 1, which applies to:
- foreign-going commercial ships which are subject to SOLAS 74, and to ships of 45 metres or more in length (other than fishing ships) which proceed beyond restricted limits
- Section 2, which applies to:
- commercial ships which are restricted limit ships, fishing ships and ships of less than 45 metres that go beyond restricted limits but are not SOLAS ships if they are being operated under a deemed Maritime Transport Operator Certificate after 1 July 2014.
