SafeSeaNet Norway is Norway’s national ship reporting system for vessels arriving and departing ports. The system has been continuously developed and improved since its establishment in 2005.
SafeSeaNet Norway is Norway’s Single Window ship reporting system, enabling ships, companies, agents and charterers to submit mandatory information electronically to Norwegian authorities only once, rather than submitting the same information several times to different authorities.
Based on national ship reporting regulations, information registered by shipping via SafeSeaNet Norway is automatically distributed to a wide range of governmental agencies.
Digital ship reporting in SafeSeaNet Norway has improved the information flow between shipping and the authorities, simplifying ship reporting procedures and reducing administrative work on board and ashore.
The establishement of SafeSeaNet Norway is in line with EU Directive 2010/65/EU, which instructs EU/EEA Member States to implement an electronic ship reporting system by June 1, 2015.
In the period of 2005 to 2012, the number of ship notifications increased from 8800 to over 100.000, and today pilot booking is made electronically via SafeSeaNet Norway.
The Single Window concept
- SafeSeaNet Norway is based on the European Single Window concept and the establishment of one national portal where vessels, ship-owners, and operators should report all mandatory information in a common system only once. This information is automatically distributed digitally to national authorities, simplifying administration and increases quality control of maritime transport data.
- The first version SafeSeaNet Norway was established in 2005.
- A complete national Single Window for ship reporting, based on current national ship reporting regulations, was established in Norway on June 1, 2015.
- The overall goal behind the establishment of SafeSeaNet Norway is to contribute to maritime safety and security, port security and efficient maritime traffic and transport by storing, retrieving and exchanging vessel related information.
