The federal government has reappointed Noel Hart as a commissioner for the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB).

Infrastructure minister Warren Truss announced the two-year extension to Hart’s appointment today.

It will take effect from the end of his current term, on July 1.

Hart is one of three commissioners heading the bureau under chief commissioner Martin Dolan, and has served with it since 2009.

Truss says Hart specialises in maritime safety, having over 30 years’ experience in the shipping industry.

"[His] maritime experience will continue to ensure that the commission has expertise in each of the transport modes covered by the ATSB, complementing the aviation and rail experience of the other two part-time commissioners," he says.
