Port clearance document management - Navigator Port

Plan and prepare the documents needed for port clearance and for sailing through controlled waters

Port clearance

A Master's day is becoming increasingly filled with paperwork and less with nautical matters. Navigator Port reverses this trend. It assists the shipmasters in carrying out the planning and preparation of documents needed for port clearance and sailing through controlled waters. Navigator Port software reduces paperwork by up to 90%, letting the Master and officers focus on their primary responsibility: safe and sound navigation.

Management of port papers, including nautical publications

  • Navigator Port software is used daily onboard several thousand ships worldwide for management of port clearance and port papers
  • Constantly developed and updated based on feedback from the user community
  • Weekly updates of latest rules, regulations and port information to vessels
  • Dedicated DNV support team

Navigator Port software supports compliance

Meeting the requirements for a growing bureaucracy and increased legislative demands is a constant challenge. Navigator Port software is tailor-made to assist the Master, and allows efficient documentation of compliance with regulations and demands from stakeholders.

eNOAD and EU electronic reporting platforms

With DNV's Navigator Port software for port clearance you can perform electronic reporting directly to authorities - this includes the US Coast Guard's Electronic Notice of Arrival/Departure (eNOAD). Navigator Port creates xml files that are directly submitted to USCG National Vessel Movement Center (NVMC). Navigator Port also supports Electronic Pre-Arrival Notification (ePAN) to the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore and delivers Excel documents used for import in electronic reporting platforms developed in European member states, as a requirement of Regulation (EU) 2019/1239 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 June 2019 establishing a European Maritime Single Window environment and repealing Directive 2010/65/EU.

Navigator Port - support for planning and reporting

Navigator Port is not a navigation aid, but an aid for effective planning of the passage through regulated fairways, port entries and departures as an aid for effective communication with parties concerned with the defined navigational activity. As Navigator Port relies on information from third party providers, we do our utmost to secure and present correct information. The Master of the ship always remains responsible for the planning and execution of the vessel’s navigation.
