The USCG National
Vessel Movement Center (NVMC) issued a Notice stating that it is releasing the beta version of the XML schema for the Electronic Notice of Arrival/Departure (eNOA/D). This version includes the fields necessary to meet both USCG (33 CFR Part
160) and USCBP (19 CFR Part 4) requirements. The schema is being provided now in order to allow industry developers time to incorporate USCG and USCBP reporting requirements into
their business processes, if they so desire. The NVMC is not yet ready to accept submissions based on this schema. The implementation date will be announced in the near future. (HK Law).
