c_130_130_16777215_00___images_logo_6.pngI am sure we all know what SAMSA stands for and how they can assist us in all the safety aspects. A little extract from their site: 

The South African Maritime SafetyAuthority (SAMSA) was established on the 1st April 1998 under the SAMSA Act 5 of 1998. SAMSA’s mandate is;

  • To ensure safety of life and property at sea;
  • To prevent and combat pollution from ships in the marine environment; and
  • To promote the Republic’s maritime interests.

SAMSA has also been charged with the responsibility of executing the following:

  • Administration of the Merchant shipping (National Small Vessel Safety) Regulation, 2007, as amended (the Regulations). The Regulations extends SAMSA’s Core mandate to include inland waterways (only waterways accessible to the public) within the Republic. That is to ensure boating safety on our waters.
  • Implementing and executing the Long-Range Identification and Tracking (LRIT) of vessels along the South African coastline. The Long-Range vessels monitoring system assist in securing South Africa’s coastal waters in the midst of the rising lawlessness at sea, with particular reference to the worrying scourge of pirate attacks along the east coast of Africa.
