Operational procedures

Operational Procedures (OPs) are an important part of our businesses and give confidence to the Minister and others that we are doing our jobs well with regular review and improvement.

In addition to extensive government regulations, quota owners have agreed to adhere to supplementary best practice measures outlined in the Deepwater Group Operational Procedures.

Although these procedures are non-regulatory, the Ministry for Primary Industries audits the vessels' performance against these to identify if further improvements might be made.
