- Persons reporting acute pollution in connection to landbased activities should do so using the national emergency number 110.
- Aircrafts should report acute pollution through the Air Traffic Service.
- Ships should report acute pollution to the Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) or the coastal radio.
- The petroleum industry should report acute pollution to the Norwegian Coastal Administration via the Joint Rescue Coordination Centres/the Petroleum Safety Authority.
Problems with navigational aids is sent to the National Coordinator for Navigational Warnings (NAVCO):
Tel: +47 22 42 23 31 (24-hour service)
Fax: +47 22 41 04 91 (24-hour service)
- 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.

Changes in Navigation at Måløy Bridge
Due to maintenance work at Måløy Bridge in Vestland County, the sailing height in the eastern fairway is reduced from 41 to 34 metres. This is valid from 31 July 2020 to 19 July 2021.
Norway contributes to shaping the future of shipping
The globally leading nations on autonomous maritime operations came together today for the very first time. They have now launched a cooperation to exchange knowledge and work towards common guidelines for future development. Norway takes part.
Changes in navigation passing the Maaloy bridge
The Norwegian Public Roads Administration will carry out necessary maintenance on the Måløy bridge (Måløybrua) from 31 July 2020 to September 2021. The sailing draft will periodically be lower than normal and the sailing pattern must therefore be temporarily changed.
