- 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.
- Other acute and/or unexpected incidents that may be hazardous to shipping must also be reported. Examples of acute and/or unexpected incidents are drifting debris, fallen high voltage cables, grounded vessels, sunken vessels and drifting fishing equipment.
- The coordinator on duty will pass the report on to the correct authority so that the irregularity can be rectified as quickly as possible. Any navigational warnings will be issued in accordance with the guidelines.
Defects on landbased AIS or DGPS stations should be reported to the Center for Pilotage and Vessel Traffic Services.
