U.S. NOAD system upgrades

ADVERTISEMENT

On April 22, NOAD schema versioned 3.4 will be released. This new version of the U.S. Notices of Arrival and Departures (NOAD) will incorporate improvements in vessel response plan data reporting.


When NOAD Schema 3.4 is released, NOAD Schema 3.2 and older versions will no longer be supported. The Ship Arrival Notification System will no longer accept NOAD’s submitted using InfoPath Template 6.2 or 6.2.1, Workbook 7.1, and OCS Notice of Arrival (NOA) Workbook 1.1.  As announced previously, the NVMC is no longer accepting all other previously retired NOAD workbooks and workbooks that have been altered or published by a third party. Currently workbooks may be downloaded from the “Downloads” section of the NVMC Web site (www.nvmc.uscg.gov).


Users should begin using NOAD InfoPath Template 6.2.2, NOAD Workbook 7.2 or OCS Notice of Arrival (NOA) Workbook 1.2 as soon as possible. It is requested that the Workbooks are completed electronically and then sent via e-mail or imported into the eNOAD web application. Alteration of NVMC official workbooks will result in significant delays and/or rejections in processing. To avoid submission problems Workbooks must be kept saved as XLS format documents.


NOAD submitters are advised that there will also be updates to several Pick Lists issued for Countries, Foreign Ports, Domestic Ports, and others. Mariners who wish to take advantage of these updates will need to download InfoPath Template 6.2.2, NOAD Workbook 7.2 or OCS Notice of Arrival (NOA) Workbook 1.2.


For questions or more information not answered at www.nvmc.uscg.gov, contact the NVMC at 1-800-708-9823 or +1 304-264-2502 or by sending an e-mail to sans@nvmc.uscg.gov. Send technical questions to techsupport@nvmc.uscg.gov.
