Safety and Environment Management Plan
As part of the Port Management Act 1995, all Victorian port managers are responsible for preparing and certifying a Safety and Environment Management Plan (SEMP).
These plans help port managers, tenants, licensees and services providers to identify and manage potential hazards and risks that may affect a port and its surrounding areas.
The SEMP addresses the:
- safety of people working within or visiting the port precinct
- minimisation of disruption to port operations and the community
- compliance with legislation, regulations and guidelines
Facilities and operations within a port will have their own Emergency Management Plans and their own responses to emergencies. These plans are supported by the port’s SEMP as developed by VRCA.

As part of the wider Australian and international port community, the Victorian Regional Channels Authority (VRCA) takes a leadership role in the management of marine safety and security.
