In 15 days, the National Vessel Movement Center will change the method of how notice of arrival and departure submissions will be accepted.
As per the newly published Notice of Arrival/Departure, or NOAD, regulation Title 33 Code of Federal Regulations Chapter 160, the NVMC will only be accepting NOAD submissions by the following methods:
- Emailed submission of either of the latest two published NVMC Workbooks located at http://www.nvmc.uscg.gov under the Downloads Tab and sent to email@example.com.
- Via the NVMC eNOAD website.
- Via third-party application submissions conforming to standards found at http://www.nvmc.uscg.gov under the Developer Tab and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Via the NVMC InfoPath template version 6.3.0 until its retirement. Submitters utilizing this product may submit their NOAD on-line by using the built-in submit functionality or by emailing it to email@example.com.
Note: The NVMC will no longer accept NOAD submissions that contain the NOAD information as text within the body of emails or attachments of scanned documents. These submissions no longer will be processed after September 30, 2015.
