The master and crew will be informed of scheduled inspections or exams. Inspections taking place prior to entering the harbor, or at anchorage, may delay the vessel and in turn delay cargo operations. NESA will monitor and negotiate these schedules on behalf of the vessel owner/charterer. The pre-arrival status of all crew will be established with U.S. Customs and Border Protection well in advance of the vessel’s arrival in order to expedite formalities on berthing.
