In a response to concerns raised by the Institute about the impact of COVID-19 on marine surveyors, Deputy Prime Minister Hon Michael McCormack MP, recognised that marine surveyors are vital to Australia's supply chain and acknowledged the unprecedented impact the pandemic was having on operations.
The Institute was assured that The Australian Government was working closely with state and territory governments on the issues it raised, including resolving issues related to interstate travel.
On 25 March 2020, the Transport and Infrastructure Council affirmed the critical role the freight sector plays in providing essential supplies of food, medicine and other goods. All jurisdictions where restrictions are in place have provided exemptions to these measures to ensure Australia's supply chains are maintained.
