As Vanuatu continues to develop its competitive and increasingly dynamic maritime sector with multiple shipping and boat operators, the need for the Office of the Maritime Regulator (OMR) to have its Corporate and Strategic Plan is becoming critical for its effective regulatory operations.


With regulatory and executive experiences, SPECS was sought to carry out the required works. It was assigned 15 days to perform regulatory impact assessment on specific common factors the OMR is experiencing. It facilitates team building exercise which led to development of OMR’s corporate plan, its annual (2022) work plans linking to its business operations plan. Other Ad-hoc regulatory works was also part of this project. For the first time since its establishment, OMR now has its three (2022 – 20240) year corporate plan supplemented by its annual work plan and strategic plan.
