It's simple, operating to a high standard can bring tangible benefits - for your business, for your clients, for the tourism industry as a whole and for the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.
As a first step to achieving high standards, please become familiar with the Responsible Reef Practices for the Marine Park and adopt them in your operating practices. Many operators already follow all or some of these practices in their daily operations; even in this case, please check each activity to see if there is anything else you could be doing.
Becoming certified with a recognised certification scheme allows you to test your operating standards against a national benchmark and provides formal recognition of your high standards. The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) offers benefits to appropriately certified operators.
Another key part of achieving high standards is quality training of your staff. Please find out more about the training opportunities available.
