Del

The roles and responsibilities between the partners behind ArcticWeb will change from June 1st 2018. From this date the Norwegian Coastal Administration will take over the ownership and operation of ArcticWeb and the Danish Maritime Authority (DMA) will continue as data-provider and advisory board member.

ArcticWeb is a web based platform for improving the safety of navigation in the Arctic. The platform is a joint regional project primarily funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers and lead by The DMA. The platform has been operational since 2014 and is free to use. The key services and tools on ArcticWeb are: route sharing, sharing of schedules, ice charts, weather on route, forecasts of wave height and ice accretion, navigational warnings and a search and rescue tool.

The Norwegian Coastal Administration has agreed to take over the ownership and operation of ArcticWeb by June 1st 2018 from the DMA.

ArcticWeb was developed in cooperation between The Government of Greenland, The Norwegian Coastal Administration, The Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI), The Danish Geodata Agency, Joint Arctic Command, Defense Centre for Operational Oceanography and the Danish Maritime Authority.

The main target group is cruise and passenger ships operating in Greenlandic waters. Approximately 250 users are currently active on ArcticWeb.

“The Danish Maritime Authority sets the direction for future quality shipping”

Our field of responsibility is based on the shipping industry and its framework conditions, the ship and its crew. In addition, we are responsible for aids to navigation in the waters surrounding Denmark and ashore. In other words, the Danish Maritime Authority has the responsibility for the following:

  • The construction, equipment and operation of Danish ships (including safety, terror prevention, navigational regulations, manning, occupational health and environmental protection) as well as port State control of foreign ships calling at Danish ports.
  • Ship registration.
  • Seafarers’ employment, health and conditions of social security.
  • Shipping policy, maritime law as well as industrial policy, both nationally and internationally.
  • Tasks related to aids to navigation at sea and ashore (lighthouses and buoys), including ships and repair workshops.
  • Navigational information in the form of navigational analyses, warnings, GIS and specialist publications.
  • The national pilot authority.

The Danish Maritime Authority consists of the central authority, eight survey offices, including the office in Nuuk, Greenland, as well as the Centre of Maritime Health and Safety on the island of Fanø.

Our responsibility as a government agency applies both to the merchant fleet and the fishing industry. However, the Danish Maritime Authority is not responsible for the industrial policy relating to fishing which is under the auspices of the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries.

Please observe that the surveillance of Danish waters and of civilian shipping, sovereignty enforcement, the police authority, pollution prevention, environmental surveillance, ice-breaking, etc. are the responsibility of the Ministry of Defence.

The Danish Maritime Authority is a government agency under the Ministry of Business and Growth.
