The USCG National Vessel Movement Center
(NVMC) released the Electronic Notice of Arrival/Departure (eNOAD) User Guide . The guide is also available in an Online Version that
includes interactive features and a searchable help system. The agency is using carrots to encourage ship owners and operators to convert to the electronic filing system. Masters, operators, and agents are also reminded that previously assigned Notice IDs or Globally Unique Identifiers (GUIDs) may only be used when submitting updated information regarding the particular arrival or departure for which the ID number was assigned. Use of such Notice ID or GUID for a different arrival/departure or for a different vessel will invalidate the NOAD and may result in delays and/or penalties.
