NVDC Restricted Under Government Shutdown

Due to the government shutdown, the National Vessel Documentation Center (NVDC) will be operating under restricted conditions.

All commercial vessel related business will be suspended until the government resumes operations. Recreational fee funding has not been affected; therefore, the limited number of onsite staff will be focused on processing recreational vessel applications.

During the shutdown, the NVDC will:

  • Continue to receive and process mail
  • Process fax and .pdf submissions in the order received
  • Limit walk-in customer service to recreational vessel applicants
  • Not monitor phone calls
     

The NVDC recognizes the impact this government shutdown may have on our maritime industry and customers - particularly the commercial portion of the industry. We will do whatever we can to minimize the impact and to recover from the government shutdown as quickly as possible.
