National Maritime Safety at Sea Council

The National Maritime Safety at Sea Council (NMSSC) was launched on 17 August 2015 to spearhead Singapore’s drive for maritime safety on a national level and ensures the sustainability of safety efforts.

The Council serves as an advisory body to MPA on maritime safety matters and its first priority is to address issues related to navigational safety and raise levels of maritime safety standards.

The Council will also endorse safety initiatives by MPA and the MPA-Industry Safety Work Groups to spearhead safety efforts and public campaigns that will raise awareness on navigational safety and practices.
