Thanks Margaret. As a Kiwi with some ancestors who came to New Zealand via Australia, I'm grateful for the work you and others have put into developing this proposal and seeing it through to approval! It's great to have a sensible and consistent approach to shipping categorisation for Australia.

Thanks Margaret,

I admire the effort you have spent to create this format. Well done!

It didn't come without some good debate about arrival ports.

You have done an awesome job with this Margaret.  I’m looking forward to seeing all these categories cleaned up.  It will be worth all the effort.  You have my support to clean it up.
