The United States Coast Guard is soliciting public comment on proposed changes to the computer application for electronic Notice of Arrival (NOA) on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). The Coast Guard NOA-OCS program currently requires NOA information for those vessels, facilities, and Mobile Offshore Drilling Units (MODUs) operating on the OCS. This information is currently being collected via the National Vessel Movement Center (NVMC) electronic Notice of Arrival and Departure (e-NOAD) process.

Public comment is necessary in order to assist the Coast Guard with assessing which requirements may be addressed in future guidance or regulations to improve the e-NOAD application.
