Home Page

     The home page will list all of the functionality available to a specific user. The two main forms of this page
     will be the full access homepage and the waste user home page.

Full Access Homepage


     For users which have registered with ABP to have full access to the Agents Interface site, the homepage
     allows users to raise new notifications for voyages (these notifications can also include waste details), view
     the current state of any notifications already in the system which the user has access to and navigate the
     users account details and the terms and conditions of the site.




       Side Menu Bar

     At any point in the system, the side menu bar will give the user a list of options that are available to them at
     that time. As well as these option a Minutes to Timeout is displayed. The ‘Minutes to Timeout’ is the amount
     of time, which the site can be left inactive before the user will automatically be logged out of the system and
     any changes will be lost. This will automatically count down until the time runs out.

Creating a Notification
     In order to create a notification the user must first be on the Home Page, to do this the user must either
     logon to the site or click on the ‘Home’ link on the top bar if the user is currently logged on.

     From the Homepage the user will be given a number of options to create a new notification, these include: -
     ‘Add New Notification’, ‘Add New Notification (unknown ship)’ and ‘Add New Notification (departure only)’.
     The availability of these options will be configurable.

     As well as creating new notifications the users will also be given the option to create a new waste
     notification, however this will be discussed at a later stage.

     After clicking the ‘add new notification’ link the user will be directed to the Notification Submission section of
     the site. At the top of the screen is description of the current voyage (which will be built up as the details for
     the notification are entered) and a key explaining that all pink fields are mandatory and require data to be
     entered in them before the notification can be submitted to ABP.

         PAVIS is to be notified of             data to be entered into them before the notification can be submitted)



     Below this is a menu bar showing all of the stages of a Notification (NB, the Type section may not always be
     present)




     By clicking on any of the stages in the Notification the user will be redirected to that section. This can be
     done throughout the submission of a notification. Note that these options are dependant on user access and
     therefore may not always be visible.

     If the notification being worked on is new, the user will be given the option to save the as a Draft. To do this
     only the minimum amount of information is required. Draft notifications will not be sent to PAVIS, they will
     simply be stored at the website until the user completes the required details and submits it.




     Throughout this section the user will be able to view the Terms and Conditions of the site using either the top
     menu or through the ‘View Terms and Conditions’ button at the bottom of the screen:

                View Terms and Conditions

     Once a user has agreed to abide by the terms and conditions of the site they can click the check box to say
     they have read and agree to abide by them.




     A notification cannot be submitted until this is checked.

Notification type (When available)


       If the user has sufficient access they will be allowed to decide if the notification they would like to raise will be
       ‘Confirmed’ or ‘Provisional’.

        Specify Notification Type
             Confirm Notification
            Making a confirmed notification will inform ABP that you wish to make a booking for a visit. This option will also make
            bookings for any requested pilotage. Any changes to a confirmed booking must be notified to ABP as soon as possible,
            otherwise charges may be incurred


             Provisional Notification
            Making a provisional notification will notify ABP that a voyage is due to occur, but will not confirm the booking. You must
            update this notification to confirm that details with VTS when you are sure that the voyage will occur, otherwise no bookings
            will be made for the ship.




       In the case that the user would simply like to put a placeholder on the system for a voyage which is due to
       occur, which will then be updated and resubmitted as a confirmed notification at a later date. The user can
       choose to create a Provisional Notification.

       Alternatively if the user wishes to specify a fully qualified Notification, they can do so by selecting the
       Confirmed Notification.

       In-order to progress form this screen the user can either click the ‘Next Step – Ship >>’ button or click on any
       of the other section on the Stage Bar.

     other for selection non-local locations.

     To select non-local location simple enter a full or partial location name and click the search, once the list of
     possible locations is returned the user should select the desired one.

     When using the location selector to pick a local location the user is presented with two predefined lists for
     Port and Location within that port.




     Once the user has selected the desired port, the locations will be populated with all of the locations within

     – Cargo >> or back to the << Previous Step for editing.

     N.B. When reviewing a notification the voyage details will show the arrival and/or departure details
     depending on the users access. (This is due to the fact that an agent can now be responsible for the arrival
     and/or departure of the ship.)

     If the ship contains dangerous cargo, then the ‘Dangerous Cargo on Arrival’ checkbox should be ticked and
     the user will then need to add a Dangerous Goods Manifest (This doesn’t need to be done immediately,
     however, failure to do this prior to the vessel sailing/entering the region will result in the MCS being notified
     that the agent failed to notify).
