Australia New Zealand Safe Boating Education Group (ANZSBEG)

ANZSBEG was established in 1994 following a national review into safe recreational boating and boating safety education undertaken by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA).


The objective of the group is to identify national safe boating issues, address them through coordinated public education strategies and provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and knowledge.


The group brings together those responsible for the implementation of government policy on boating safety, those with a responsibility for the implementation of national/ international training standards, small craft search and rescue and those that have direct communication links with the recreational boater.

The members of ANZSBEG are representatives of State and Northern Territory government boating authorities, Australian Maritime Safety Authority, Maritime New Zealand, Yachting Australia, Boating Industries Alliance Australia, Bureau of Meteorology, Australian Communications and Media Authority, Royal Life Saving Australia and Surf Life Saving Australia. The Chair, administration and secretariat functions for the groups bi-annual meetings are determined by agreement amongst the regulatory jurisdictions.

Only members have full access to this site. All non members should liaise through their appropriate State or Territory representative member for any requests to Group working documents. State or Territory contacts can be found on the Contact Us page.
