The China Maritime Safety Administration (Chinese: 中国海事局) is a government agency in charge of the supervision of the safety in the waterways, prevention of pollution, and of the navigation safety.

Please note that China MSA can not be directly compared to any other "Coast Guard" - because China does not have a single authority that would fit the title of a "Coast Guard".
