Notices to Mariners

After nautical charts and publications have been published, sea routes, coasts, ports, and more continue to change naturally and artificially. Because these changes influence the safety of navigation directly and indirectly, it is necessary to swiftly and accurately provide vessels with information on such changes in order to ensure safe navigation and prevent marine accidents. The notices to mariners help mariners maintain their nautical charts and publications up to date. They are issued once a week and promulgated via various channels, including the Internet.

As marine cargo traffic is on the rise in the era of globalization, we at KHOA collect a variety of information both at home and abroad and swiftly provide it in the form of a notice to mariners in order to secure the sea traffic safety and set up economical routes. For any information that mariners and marine workers have attained, please contact us or report it to the following address.
