Why do I need to submit a digital report to North Sea Port?

In 2024/2025, digital reporting of all shipping will become a requirement under EU law. Many vessel types are already required to make digital reports for safety reasons.

In order to make reporting as simple and easy as possible for the skipper, North Sea Port has decided to introduce digital reporting across the board for all inland navigation now. This will enable us to support our colleagues in optimising the management and safety of our port.
