  About the review

The Department of Transport (DoT) is conducting a review of the safety equipment required for recreational vessels (e.g. boats, personal water craft, sailboards etc.) on all WA waters, including inland waterways, rivers and lakes.

As part of the review DoT has undertaken to involve the boating and wider community in WA through a two phase consultation plan which is now underway.

The first phase of consultation where the community could provide comment on safety equipment concluded on Monday 10 July 2017. Based on the outcomes of this first phase of consultation, proposed changes to the safety equipment that might be required by Regulations will be available for comment in a second opportunity for feedback later in the review process.

Documents that were used to inform the community about the review for the first phase of consultation appear below, though the survey has closed.
