In a joint cooperation, Sweden and Denmark have established an IMO approved Mandatory Ship Reporting System in the Sound, named SOUNDREP, with the purpose of improving the safety of navigation and the protection of the marine environment in the Sound area.
SOUNDREP will provide information to ships about specific and urgent situations, which may cause conflicting traffic movements as well as other information concerning safety of navigation. SOUNDREP can also provide individual information to a ship, particularly in relation to positioning and navigational assistance or local conditions. SOUNDREP is operated by Sound VTS from a joint centre in Malmoe.
