As an MSIC cardholder you are bound by the following obligations:
MSIC holders must
■ display a valid MSIC at all times whilst in a maritime security zone
■ notify their issuing body or AusCheck if they are convicted of a maritime-security related offence and sentenced to imprisonment
■ notify their issuing body within 7 days, if their MSIC is lost, stolen or destroyed
■ return their MSIC to the issuing body within 30 days after:
■ it expires
■ is cancelled
■ has been damaged, altered or defaced (permanently or temporarily)
■ if the cardholder no longer has an operational need to enter a secure area at least once a year
■ notify their issuing body if any of there is a change to their personal information. See below:
■ Name – e.g. change of name due to marriage/divorce. An MSIC issued to a person who changes his or her name ceases to be valid one month after the day on which the change is made, so their MSIC will need to be replaced. See How do I replace my MSIC?
■ Employment information – e.g. the company you are working for
■ Residential / Postal address
■ Phone number(s)
■ Email address
■ Visa details – e.g. Your Visa has expired or been renewed
