Vessels subject to a fee must register with SafeSeaNet Norway by the end of the year. They will then be invoiced quarterly.
The following annual fees can be registered:
- Pilotage readiness fee (vessels required to use a pilot)
- Safety fee in Oslofjord (Horten VTS)
- Safety fee in Rogaland (Kvitsøy VTS)
Vessels that mainly sail in waters subject to pilotage in the year in question will automatically be charged an annual pilotage readiness fee for the next year. If these vessels are required to pay a fee to a VTS, they must register for the annual safety fee.
The annual pilotage readiness fee varies according to the size of the vessel, and corresponds to between 36 and 46 calls to port.
