Inland shipping forms and checklists

How can we help you?

When visiting the port of Rotterdam, inland vessels have to fill in nautical forms under certain circumstances. For example, do you have special cargo or do you want to carry out repairs to your inland vessel in the port of Rotterdam? Below you will find an overview of the forms.

Completed forms should be e-mailed to Harbour Coördination Centre. In addition, on this page you will find safety checklists, for example for the transhipment of hazardous substances and for LNG.

Hazardous / non-hazardous disposal

The inland shipping checklists have been included in the ISGINTT (International Safety Guide for Inland Navigation Tank-barges and Terminals) and serve as a best practice.
