Marine businesses in Northern Territory rejoin industry association.
The Boating Industry Association (BIA) has welcomed marine businesses in the Northern Territory into the association, providing them with industry representation and member support for the first time in several years.
Marine businesses in the Territory were previously aligned with the former Marine Queensland for services and representation but, following the demise of that body, the companies, numbering about 15, remained outside the BIA fold.
Following a visit to Darwin by BIA to meet with industry leaders, BIA has now included NT as a regional grouping, with members listed in the BIA member locator. The BIA will provide member services and support such as inclusion in the association E-News and Logbook and representation on industry issues.
BIA is also working with NT government and safety agencies, including AMSA, to address issues concerning the commercial vessel sector and recreational boat standards compliance.
