SIMA Corporate Plan

Welcome to the Solomon Islands Maritime Authority!

The Solomon Islands Maritime Authority (SIMA) has been established by act of parliament and is developing towards a financially self-sufficient and independent maritime administration to facilitate implementation of international and regional maritime agreements and applicable maritime laws.

SIMA administers the Solomon Islands maritime sector, inspecting vessels, coordinating maritime search and rescue, preventing and coordinating response to pollutions from ships, and providing safety of navigation services. Four overarching goals are adopted in its Corporate Plan 2020-2023:

  • Improved Maritime Safety & Pollution Prevention,
  • Improved Safety of Navigation, Environment Protection & Response,
  • Effective International & Regional Maritime Cooperation, and
  • Good Governance & Quality Services.

Following SIMA’s Second Anniversary held on 5 April, the concept of a Maritime Development and Resilience Strategy has been developed to underpin the new Corporate Plan covering the period 2024-2027 and engaging partners and stakeholders in the maritime future we want for Solomon Islands.
