No significant statutes or regulations were brought into force during the year under review. Much South African admiralty and maritime legislation is failing to keep abreast of international developments, and there is a particular need to review and amend the Merchant Shipping Act 57 of 1951. Various marine notices and guidance notes were, however, issued by the South African Maritime Safety Authority ('SAMSA') that are of importance to seafarers, especially in relation to safety and certification matters. And these marine notices and guidance notes can play a significant role in criminal and civil proceedings.
