As of March 21, 2012, some agents will report crew and passenger lists to the Police using SafeSeaNet Norway, to test a new SafeSeaNet module which has been developed for the Police in regards to Schengen Sea Border Control.
Only a limited number of agents and three police districts in Southwest Norway will take part of the test project, which will be carried out over a period of six months.
Pending a successful test period, the police module plans to be fully integrated within 2012, so that arrival notifications required in connection to sea border control can be submitted in SafeSeaNet Norway.
SafeSeaNet Norway is Norway's Single Window portal for ship reporting, as a messaging service for ships arriving and departing Norwegian ports. The system is continuously being developed by the Norwegian Coastal Administration to simplify ship reporting for mariners and provide easy governmental access to arrival information required by the Coastal State.
