About Us

Industry information

Aviation and Maritime Division (AMS), formerly the Office of Transport Security (OTS) works closely with industry, other government agencies and international partners to achieve transport security outcomes.

We collaborate with our stakeholders and industry participants to shape policy and deliver robust regulatory outcomes.

We work with our stakeholders to:

  • inform our work by better understanding their operational environments
  • find practical and cost effective ways to maintain or improve transport security
  • harmonise our work with other government agencies where possible
  • influence and encourage internationally consistent standards in transport security management.

Forums

We host and participate in a number of consultative forums across industry sectors.
