Inland shipping forms and checklists

When calling on the port of Rotterdam, inland vessels are required to complete nautical forms under certain circumstances. For example, if you carry a special cargo or your inland vessel requires repairs in the port of Rotterdam, there are forms for this purpose. These forms are available online in PDF format. Completed forms should be e-mailed to In addition, on this page you will find safety checklists, for example for the transhipment of hazardous substances and for LNG. You can view and print the forms using Adobe Reader.

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.


The LNG checklist forms part of the Rotterdam Port Management By-Laws 2010 (Annex IV).
