NOAD Schema 3.6 And NVMC Workbook 7.6 Officially ReleasedIndicator

11/13/2018 - 1 Month Ago

As part of ongoing efforts to enhance maritime domain awareness, we continue to improve handling of essential data contained within Notices of Arrival and Departure (NOAD). An updated NOAD schema, versioned 3.6, has been released and contains various schema improvements, updates to our ports list and retirement of the NVMC workbook as a means of submission for Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) NOAs. With the release of NOAD Schema 3.6, NOAD Schema 3.4 and older versions will no longer be supported.

Additionally, the official NVMC XLSX workbook for submitting a Notice of Arrival/Departure (NOAD) has been released. This updated workbook is now in the newer Microsoft Excel XLSX format to reduce the file size and contains foreign port additions/removals/corrections. This new workbook also contains various validation checks to prevent data entry error, comments for each field to aid in data entry and a new definitions worksheet for answers to frequently asked questions. You may obtain a copy of the new workbook in our Downloads section.
