Nomination Status

In partnership with our Resource Manager customers, the Port Nomination status has been further refined and is now available across all jurisdictions. The Status level provides a simple and effective way to capture both the Vessel-Check system assessments and jurisdictional reviews for each port nomination. These are made visible to Vessel Managers and are defined in our Knowledge Base.
