Explanatory notes

Two kinds of permits are issued:

• a single voyage permit (SVP) is issued for a single voyage between designated ports for the

carriage of a specified cargo or passengers; and

• a continuing voyage permit (CVP) is issued for a period of up to three months (up to

December 2002 a CVP could be issued up to 6 months) and enables a vessel to carry

specified cargo between nominated ports for that period

The information on permits provided in previous editions of Australian Sea Freight differs

from that appearing in the BITRE's Waterline series. Previously, figures for permits issued were

reported in Waterline, and permits used in Australian Sea Freight. In this report, figures for

both permits issued and permits used are presented.
