Voluntary Reporting Scheme
Shipping operators are invited to participate to a Voluntary Reporting Scheme. Voluntary reporting improves the cooperation and guidance EMASoH can provide to ships on the basis of informing, reassuring, and promoting the freedom of navigation. Voluntary reported ships are also prioritized for possible accompaniments with EMASoH’s naval assets and reassuring calls with naval and aerial assets.
Before entering the Voluntary Reporting Area (VRA), 48 hours in advance, or as soon as possible:
Inform EMASoH about the timing of your intended entry and exit of the VRA;
Confirm the planning 6 hours before entering and share possible changes to the journey planning;
Report any suspicious behaviour to the coast guard of the coastal state and to EMASoH.
If you should change your timings, please send us an update as soon as possible
The Voluntary Reporting Area
The Voluntary Reporting Area reaches from 15 degrees North up and from 53 degrees East to 63 degrees East.
