Itree successfully delivers national Maritime Safety platform for Australian Maritime Safety Authority



Itree have been closely engaged with AMSA since 2011 in the transition of domestic commercial vessel regulations to AMSA.  The most recent project was the successful public launch of the MARS platform on 1 July 2018.


The MARS platform has been implemented on the RegTech industry-leading RegulationWorks® platform, to centralise the management of maritime regulatory functions. Prior to this, domestic commercial vessels were regulated by the relevant state or territory authority. AMSA now delivers the full range of national system regulatory services to domestic commercial vessel operators in a consistent manner for the whole of Australia. The project involved over 40 Itree analyst and technical experts during the two year engagement. As the system prepared for go live, over 28,000 historical activities and 773,000 entities (people, organisations and vessels) were migrated from State-based systems in to the MARS national deployment.


AMSA is planning further enhancements including inspections functionality and additional business process improvements. Nationalisation of regulatory administration to achieve improved outcomes is an Itree specialisation and could be applied to many other government agencies, to manage their systems more efficiently. RegulationWorks achieves high productivity for domains including safety, compliance, regulation and enforcement. For more details, see here.
