The Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) in Vardø and Murmansk will, using the Barents SRS ship reporting system, exchange information on risk transport that sails between Røst and Murmansk. The system helps Norwegian authorities at the Norwegian Coastal Administration and Russian authorities to gain a better understanding of the situation in shipping traffic in the Barents Sea.
The Barents Area Ship Reporting System (SRS) is mandatory for all ships with a gross tonnage of 5,000 and above; all tankers; all ships carrying hazardous cargoes; a vessel towing when the length of the tow exceeds 200 metres; and any ship not under command, restricted in their ability to manoeuvre or having defective navigational aids.
The SRS comprises a Norwegian Monitoring Area and a Russian Federation Monitoring Area. Ships within the Norwegian monitoring area report to the NOR VTS (Vardø), using AIS (Automatic Information System) or other specified means. The traffic separation schemes off the coast of Norway from Vardø to Røst are within the operational area of Barents Area SRS.
