Welcome to APHoMSA

Map of APHoMSA Members, and eligible Members (countries and territories located on the Pacific Rim).

The Asia-Pacific Heads of Maritime Safety Agencies (APHoMSA) forum was established in 1996 to promote safe, secure shipping and a clean marine environment within the Asia-Pacific region.

APHoMSA achieves this by bringing together senior maritime officials to build and maintain a strong understanding of shared maritime issues, identify and coordinate technical cooperation efforts and represent the region's interest in enhancing international standards.

Membership to APHoMSA is open to all Pacific Rim countries and territories by the invitation and agreement of existing Members.

APHoMSA is held annually.
