    HistoryThe Maritime Services Board of New South Wales was established on 1 February 1936 as an amalgamation of the functions of the Sydney Harbour Trust and the Navigation Department. The Board was created under the Maritime Services Board Act, 1935 to administer the registration of vessels, pilotage services, conservation of navigable waters, regulate passenger safety and the operation of ports and port facilities in New South Wales. The Board was made up of three full-time Commissioners. In 1950 the New South Wales Traponsport and Highways Commission was established, which exercised a supervisory role over both the Maritime Services Board and Department of Transport until 1952. The introduction of the Marine Administration Act, 1989, led to the establishment of a number of subsidiary authorities of the Maritime Services Board including MSB Sydney Ports Authority and MSB Hunter Ports Authority. Each subsidiary authority had its own board of directors. During the early 1990s the responsibilities of the Maritime Services Board were transferred to other government bodies and the Board was eventually disbanded following the establishment of the Office of Marine Safety and Port Strategy on 1 July 1995.
