Southern Ports is the registered business name under which the Southern Ports Authority operates and carries out the duties as defined in the Port Authorities Act 1999 in order to facilitate trade in a commercially responsible manner.
We have the power to perform specific functions, and hold and dispose of assets and enter into arrangements.
The Act provides defined lines of accountability with the State Government and exempts Southern Ports from the Public Sector Management Act 1994, however we are required to put in place minimum standards, via a code of ethics and conduct, which reflect the principles of the Public Sector Management Act 1994. We also report annually on our performance against those standards to the Public Sector Standards Commissioner.
