The Norwegian Coastal Administration operates several information services and reporting systems for vessels. Information about these services and systems is available here.
The Norwegian Coastal Administration has established a national network and system for receiving AIS signals from ships along the Norwegian coast in accordance with EU Directive 2002/59/EC on establishing a joint European traffic monitoring and information system for vessel traffic.
It is mandatory to report information about new vessels and name changes for vessels to the Norwegian Coastal Administration. This information must be submitted by using the Form for Reporting LRIT Information.
Many of the permanent navigational aids along the coast are automated and unmanned. It is therefore important that mariners notify the Norwegian Coastal Administration of any irregularities in the navigational installations.
The following suppliers (ASP) are currently approved to test and approve LRIT solutions on board ships.
The Pilot Exemption Certificate (P.E.C) is issued by the Norwegian Coastal Administration. Mariners applying for a Pilot Exemption Certificate must undergo a theoretical and practical test to qualify for a P.E.C. Upon approval P.E.C’s can be issued to the vessel captain or other qualified mariners on board.
