Participation in the SOUNDREP Ship Reporting System is mandatory for all vessels above 300 GT transiting through the SOUNDREP operational area or proceeding to or from ports and anchorages in The Sound.

Vessels can fulfil most of the reporting procedures by using non-verbal means such as an e-mail report or the online reporting form prior to entering. However vessels must establish contact on VHF when entering the area.

The following categories of vessels are exempt from the Reporting System, but are encouraged to participate: Warships, Naval Auxiliaries or Vessels owned by a contracting government and used only in government non-commercial service.
