To ensure smooth and safe shipping traffic, the Harbour Master's office in Antwerp and Zeebrugge monitors the regulations and special authorisations in the port area. For works with a nautical impact, you need to apply for authorisation. This authorisation is necessary to ensure the safe execution of the works, the smooth and safe passage of shipping traffic and to minimise risks to the environment. 

Via TOOL

For the following works in Antwerp, you need to submit an application via TOOL:

 

  • Diving operations on port infrastructure.
  • Repairs to port infrastructure.
  • Work in the vicinity of the quayside or on jetties of Seveso companies.
  • Blasting work on steel structures on the quay.

 

We are working hard to digitise our authorisations. You can already apply for the infrastructure-related authorisations via TOOL. Through the manual you can create an account and read more about how you can submit authorisations through the application.
