Workshop on Electronic Reporting of Vessel Trip Reports (eVTRs) for the For-Hire Sector

For information about eVTR requirements and reporting software options, please visit our For-Hire Electronic Vessel Trip Reporting web page. 

Two workshops will be held for for the purpose of providing instruction to for-hire operators on electronic reporting of vessel trip reports (VTRs). While all options for electronic reporting will be briefly discussed, the majority of each workshop will focus on hands-on training for the SAFIS eTrips/mobile and eTrips Online systems developed by the Atlantic Coastal Cooperative Statistics Program (ACCSP). 

Workshop Dates and Locations 

Webinar: The Council will also hold a public webinar on Friday, March 2, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to provide instruction to for-hire operators on electronic reporting of vessel trip reports (VTRs).  Click here for more information.

What to Bring

It would be extremely helpful to bring an electronic tablet or laptop capable of connecting to the internet via W-Fi and have a Google account (for Android systems) or iTunes account (for Apple systems) established to allow downloading of the SAFIS eTrips/mobile app. If you will be using ACCSP’s SAFIS eTrips/mobile or eTrips Online and you do not have a SAFIS account, the ACCSP will contact you prior to the workshop to set up your account. 

Please direct any questions to workshop coordinator Andrew Loftus (; 410-295-5997).
