Navigational warnings

The NCA is responsible for sending navigational warnings for the Norwegian Sea, the Greenland Sea and the western part of the Barents Sea, an area known by mariners as NAVAREA XIX. We are also the national coordinator for coastal warnings for the Norwegian coast and the coast of Svalbard.

We will try to keep our websites continuously updated with current navigation warnings, but for reasons beyond our control, we cannot guarantee that our websites are up to date at all times.

The website is therefore not intended to be a substitute for, or an alternative to, the ordinary navigational warning service. Thus, the publication of navigation warnings on the website does not exempt seafarers from the responsibility of following official navigation warnings sent over NAVTEX, SafetyCast and SafetyNET in accordance with national regulations and SOLAS provisions.
