6) Australian Government review of the Historic Shipwrecks Act 1976 - REMINDER: submissions close 17 July 2009

 

The Australian Government has commenced a review of the Historic Shipwrecks Act 1976 and consideration of ratification of the UNESCO 2001 Convention for the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage. A discussion paper was released on Friday 5 June 2009 and is available on the historic shipwreck web pages of the Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts http://www.environment.gov.au/heritage/shipwrecks/review/index.html.

 

Community participation is encouraged, and written submissions are invited until 17 July 2009.

 

The review is looking at the operation of the legislation and whether it is achieving its objectives.

 

The review will also consider whether Australia should amend its legislation to meet international best practice for the management of its underwater cultural heritage.

 

This is the first time that the Historic Shipwrecks Act 1976 has been reviewed. As the current legislative regime is now over 30 years old and the Australian Government does not have legislation in place to protect other types of archaeological sites and artefacts found in Australian waters, such as aircraft, a review is timely.

 

While the process of considering ratification of the Underwater Cultural Heritage Convention is separate to that of reviewing the Historic Shipwrecks Act, both issues are closely related. This review is therefore considering whether the Act should be amended having regard to both the UNESCO Underwater Cultural Heritage Convention and international best practice.

 

The review of the Historic Shipwrecks Act will consider the operation of the legislation and the extent to which it is achieving its purpose, the new international framework for managing underwater cultural heritage and current heritage policy needs.

 

The review is to be completed by 30 October 2009 and public submissions are invited until 17 July 2009 to ensure consideration of a wide range of views.

 

Submissions can be directed to:

Secretariat to the Review of the Historic Shipwrecks Act

GPO Box 787

Canberra ACT 2601

 

Or

 

HSreview@environment.gov.au

 

Submissions will be published on the review website unless marked confidential, at

www.environment.gov.au/heritage/shipwrecks/review  

 

Questions about the review can be directed to the Secretariat: HSreview@environment.gov.au
