Welcome to the new HSVAR portal entry page, serving the Compliance Agreement purposes.

The site has been totally renovated to provide dynamic access to the most recently updated high seas vessel information. This new HSVAR portal is powered by, and takes advantage of, the efficient operability offered by the Vessel Record Management Framework (VRMF), a versatile set of tools and methodologies developed by FAO to assist and standardize the management of vessel information registries.

To explore its functionalities, please fill the form below with your HSVAR user credentials. You can also directly access a set of public pages displaying the collection coverage and the quality of the current data without the need to log-in.

For further information or requests, please write to the following address: [email protected]
