STANDARDISED VESSEL DATASET (SVD)

NOON REPORTS

The Smart Maritime Network’s Standardised Vessel Dataset (SVD) for Noon Reports project aims to provide a free and open list of defined data formats for common vessel operational data points typically found in the daily Noon Report, with the goal of offering maritime stakeholders a central reference point for data mapping that can be applied by shipping companies, technology providers or any related third parties to improve the digital capabilities of the industry.

Incorporating standardised International Maritime Organization (IMO) Data Numbers from the IMO Compendium on Facilitation and Electronic Business (2024 version, as approved by FAL 48), as well as unique ID tags following the data structure described in ISO 19848 (Ships and marine technology — Standard data for shipboard machinery and equipment), the list of suggested standard data point names and formats is designed to be completely non-proprietary, company and vendor agnostic, and is free to download and apply by all users.

This list focuses on data commonly found in vessel Noon Reports, but the dataset is intended to be continually expanded to add further standardised data points covering a wider range of use cases, offering a central open reference list of standard data formats free for use by all maritime and supply chain industry stakeholders.

Voyage Model, Voyage Order and Voyage Performance Reports.

Report from the Intelligent Ship Transport Systems project in Norway with background information relevant to the use of voyage orders and voyage performance reports – also referred to as Noon Reports. Covers relationships to charter parties and analysis of voyage performance in that context, as well as examining other uses of the Noon Report, such as for EU MRV and IMO DCS reporting. Defines voyage and voyage components as a baseline for voyage orders and noon reports.
