Where can I find my Notice ID and Vessel ID?
A Notice ID is a globally unique identifier (GUID) assigned to each NOAD submission. This ID is available within the email receipt that is returned upon a successful submission. An example of a Notice ID is EDB947CA-99F6-11E1-B55E-0AD26188709B.
A Vessel ID can either be an Official Number or IMO Number that identifies the vessel. The Vessel ID used in the tracking service must be the same Vessel ID that was provided in the submission. An example of an Official Number is AA 12345. An example of an IMO Number is 1234567.

RECEIPT SENT indicates that the screening and validation process has been completed and an email has been sent to the appropriate parties to request additional information (INCOMPLETE NOTICE) or that the information received was deemed sufficient (RECEIPT OF NOTICE).
