The U.S. Coast Guard no longer accepts advanced Notice of Arrival/Departures (NOADs) filed online with the InfoPath Template 6.0 or 6.1, Workbook 7.0, and OCS Notice of Arrival (NOA) Workbook 1.0.
Users should use NOAD InfoPath Template 6.2.1, NOAD Workbook 7.1 or OCS Notice of Arrival (NOA) Workbook 1.1. They can be downloaded from the Downloads section of the NVMC Web site, www.nvmc.uscg.gov.
It is requested that the Workbooks are completed electronically and then sent via e-mail or imported into the eNOAD web application, according to a USCG press release. Alteration of the official workbook will result in significant delays in processing. The Workbooks must be kept saved as XLS format documents.
