Have your say on proposed lifejacket regulations

19 Sep 2017

Have your say on proposed regulations about when lifejackets must be worn on recreational vessels in South Australian waters.

Lifejacket wearing regulations are being reviewed - have your say

Currently there is a requirement that lifejackets be carried on board vessels, but the requirement to wear them only applies in specific circumstances.

A range of options are being considered to strengthen the rules to improve safety for boaters, as well as better align with the requirements for boaters in other states such as NSW and Victoria.

Find out more, complete the survey and join the conversation on the yourSAy website.

Consultation is open until 5.00pm, Friday 22 September 2017. Your comments will help to inform the final regulations.

The outcome of the consultation and the final legislation will be published on the yourSAy page and on the On Deck website.
