Notice:PORT OF FREEPORT

National Threat Level - Elevated Condition (Yellow)
Freeport Marsec Level - 1

** USCG ADVISORY

A new Notice of Arrival enforcement policy has been generated by HQ and
they have established a very strict stance to NOA violations such that no
latitude is authorized for NOA submittal violations. That means if a
vessel is required to submit a 24 hour NOA, the vessel will wait 24 hours
from the time of submittal before entering port, and if a vessel is
required to 96 hour NOA, the vessel will wait 96 hours from the time of
submittal before entering port. There will be no option to enter port
prior to the applicable time frames, under any condition.

Please, please ensure your operators and NOA submitters are aware of this
enforcement policy as the consequences can be quite significant to their
operations and there is no one they can talk to that is authorized to
exercise leniency...
