As the lead agency for maritime security policy in New Zealand, we chair the Maritime Security Oversight Committee and host a small cross-sector team to implement the Maritime Security Strategy.
The Maritime Security Oversight Committee is made up of 11 Government agencies and is part of the national security system. It is responsible for overseeing New Zealand's maritime security arrangements.
We published the Maritime Security Strategy in December 2020.
