AIS Vessel Information Verification Service (VIVS)

Before you head out for the season


If you have AIS, please verify that the registration is in compliance. Apparently there have been some duplicate numbers given out that make it unclear who is broadcasting, or that your broadcasting doesn't match your registration. Although the fines for non compliance can be significant, the Coast Guard has said that all vessels who have made a good faith effort to be in compliance will receive only a warning should there be an issue. The following link outlines the web sites to visit to troubleshoot and/or identify your status.
