The Government will move to full cost recovery of services provided under the Seacare Scheme by 2019‑20. The Seacare Scheme sets national workers compensation and work, health and safety arrangements for some businesses in the maritime industry.

The move to full cost recovery will be implemented through a phased approach, with the levy and fees expected to be progressively introduced from 1 July 2016 and full cost recovery achieved from 1 July 2019. The levy and fees will recover the cost of performing regulatory functions by the Safety Rehabilitation and Compensation Commission, Comcare and the Australian Maritime Safety Authority.

The financial implications of this measure are not for publication (nfp) due to ongoing consultation with industry.
