Endorsement of Seacare annual report
With endorsement of the annual report, the Authority duly considered actuarial advice on the appropriate level of reserves for the Fund, and the rate of levy appropriate for maintaining this reserve. The Authority agreed that, in order to maintain the reserve, an adjustment would be required to the levy rate and that the levy amount be considered further, following consultation with affected industry participants.
