Safety equipment review

The Department has progressed its comprehensive review of the safety equipment required for recreational vessels in WA. Here you will find details of the review.

  About the review

A second round of community consultation has now closed, as the Department reviews 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 for the first time since 1992.  
If you have any questions about the review you can email.

  Work to date

Following careful consideration of 1,200 submissions received in response to an initial discussion paper released in March 2017, the Recreational Vessel Safety Equipment Review Position Paper was developed and proposed changes to the recreational vessel safety equipment requirements in WA.  
The second-round of consultation sought community feedback on the proposals via an online survey which concluded on Friday 22 November 2019.  
Documents that were used to inform the community about the review during both phases of consultation appear below.
