Commonwealth Child Safe Framework - Statement of Compliance

For: Information seekers

The Seafarers Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Authority (Seacare Authority) is committed to promoting and maintaining a culture that provides a safe environment for children and young people.

The Seacare Authority’s core activities are in overseeing the operation of the Seacare scheme. Interactions are predominantly with maritime industry and government stakeholders, and the Seacare Authority does not have any activities, including third-party funded activities, that directly involve children.

A risk assessment of the Seacare Authority’s activities was undertaken in 2023 to evaluate the risk of harm to children and young people. This assessed the overall residual risk rating for child-safety related risks as low, based on the premise that the Seacare Authority does not work directly with children and has no current or planned engagement with children.

The Seacare Authority is committed to compliance with the Commonwealth Child Safe Framework and will continue maturing the adoption of the national principles through the 2023-24 financial year.
