MSA surveyor James Nolan gains registration to conduct surveys on commercial Vessels in New Zealand.

Posted in Maritime Industry News by Admin 0

Maritime Survey Australia (MSA) surveyor James Nolan has recently been granted recognition by Maritime New Zealand to conduct surveys on Commercial Vessels in New Zealand. 

This development will allow MSA  to complete plan approval on New Zealand designed and built commercial vessels in order to assist local NZ counterparts who are not accredited to complete plan approval.  In addition, it will also allow MSA to complete plan approval and initial surveys on vessels built in Australia which are to be operated in New Zealand.

Maritime Survey Australia have a strong track record providing maritime survey and consulting services to a variety of international clients.  Not only does this registration enable MSA to grow its global presence, but it also allows MSA to offer a specialist service to builders, owners and operators of commercial vessels with shared business interests on both sides of the Tasman Sea.

MSA’s recognition is granted in accordance with the Trans-Tasman Mutual Recognition Act 1997 (TTMRA), whereby James Nolan's accreditation as surveyor under an Australian jurisdiction is recognised within the following categories:

  • Design approval - Steel & Aluminium 
    Restricted to ships up to 45 metres, restricted to offshore

  • Design approval - Fibre Reinforced Plastic (FRP)
    Restricted to ships up to 45 metres, restricted to offshore

  • Design approval – Plastic 
    Restricted to ships up to 45 metres, restricted to offshore

  • Initial Construction 1 - IC1 
    Restricted to ships up to 35 metres, restricted to offshore

  • Periodic 1 r - P1 r 
    Restricted to ships up to 35 metres, restricted to offshore


Do you have a vessel that is due for its survey in accordance with its survey certificates?

Contact Maritime Survey Australia today to discuss your project requirements.

Our Marine Surveyors are accredited with the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA), members of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) and members of the certifying authority of the International Institute of Marine Surveying (IIMS). We believe we have the most competitive rates offering the best value to Victorian commercial vessel operators. The benefits of using Maritime Survey Australia ensure that the vessel operator has to engage with only one company. Unlike many of our competitors, our Surveyors are experienced Marine Engineers, Masters and Naval Architects accredited for ALL categories including periodic electrical and communication meaning you do not need to engage with a third party to complete the survey.

The survey is carried out accurately interpreting standards and guidelines, and applying rules and/or regulatory requirements.

The owner will be informed of any deficiencies discovered during the survey of a vessel that requires repair, replacement or action and will be recorded on a survey activity report, a copy of which will be given the owner or owner's representative at the time of the survey. We will remain impartial in all of our business dealings, and we will never conduct business in a manner which could place our business integrity or impartiality at risk or question.
