SafeSeaNet Norway is an internet-based maritime single window reporting system that enables vessels to provide mandatory notifications to Norwegian governmental authorities and ports electronically.
Vessels register mandatory arrival and departure information in SafeSeaNet Norway. This information is forwarded to individual Norwegian authorities and ports in accordance with national regulations. SafeSeaNet Norway complies with EU Directives 2002/59 and 2010/65.
The Norwegian Coastal Administration has developed tailor-made digital solutions for Norwegian authorities, which enables the distribution of relevant shipping information to authorities directly from the messaging system, without requiring individual reporting from shipping.
Today authorities such as Customs, Defence, Police, maritime authorities, and ports use this service.
Since SafeSeaNet Norway was first introduced in 2004, the number of notifications from ships to authorities has been reduced from 330 000 to 85 000, equivalent to a 74 per cent reduction.
The following notifications shall be provided through SafeSeaNet:
- Port arrival notification
- Port departure notification for ships carrying port and carrying dangerous or polluting cargo
- Notifications of landing of waste
- Notifications of intent to cross the Norwegian baseline
- Maritime security notifications
- Port State Control Notifications
- Customs declarations
- Border crossing notifications
- Pilot requests

Advantages of digitalized ship reporting:
- One single window for ship reporting makes it easier for shipping to send mandatory information to authorities.
- The number of notifications is reduced as various authorities receive one common notification instead of many singular notifications from individual vessels.
- Reduces administrative tasks on board, which enables mariners to spend more time on navigational tasks.
- Already registered users can reuse data previously registered in the system, reducing administrative time.
- The system is designed so that it becomes easier for shipping to meet reporting obligations.
- The transition to digital and consistent messages from shipping to ports facilitate more efficient port logistics.
- Quick and easy access to digitized and automated ship notifications frees up time and resources in the government administration.
Introducing New Regulations for Pilot Bookings
On April 3, 2018, the Norwegian Coastal Administration (NCA) will introduce new booking regulations for requesting marine pilots. The regulations will thus be formalized and merged into one set ‒ Regulations on Compulsory Pilotage.
Undergoing final Quality Assurance
The final quality assurance phase, referred to as KS2, began in September 2017 and will be completed in late spring of 2018.
See Current Conditions in Saltstraumen live on Web Camera
The NCA has established a web camera that transmits live images from Saltstraumen – one of the strongest maelstrom’s in the world. Live video transmission is an additional service to the automated current forecast, established in September 2017.
Fees for 2018: Reduction in Safety Fees and moderate increase in Pilotage Fee
The fees for 2018 set by the Ministry of Transport and Communications, are noticeably lower than 2017. For 2018, safety fees are reduced by 8.5 per cent on average and the pilot readiness fee is increased by 1.9 per cent on average.
Automated control of vessels using Pilot Exemption Certificates
In November the Norwegian Coastal Administration introduced a digital tool that improves and automates the process of uncovering compulsory pilotage violations. Monitoring compulsory pilotage, including the Pilot Exemption Certificate (PEC) scheme, helps ensure a high degree of safety along the coast.
