8/14/2014: 90-Day notice of update to NOAD Fall 2014 Picklist/Schema

The National Vessel Movement Center announced a 90-day notice of an updated package of picklist reference files to be released which will incorporate various country and port changes.

As part of ongoing efforts to enhance maritime domain awareness, the NVMC continues to improve handling of essential data contained within Notices of Arrival and Departure, or NOAD.

On or about 12 November 2014, an updated package of picklist reference files will be released, which incorporates various country and port changes. Once the exact changes have been identified, an updated notice will be made available for reference. At the time of this notification, no specific schema changes have been identified, and the NVMC anticipates continuing with support for both Schema 3.3 and Schema 3.4; however, should changes to the schema become available, they will be included in a follow-up notification.

While every effort is being made to ensure these updates are as accurate as possible at the time of this posting, there exists the possibility for additional changes as needed or at the direction of the program office. All such changes or additions will be made available as soon as they are provided to or identified by the Ship Arrival and Notification, or SANS, team.
