Vessel Monitoring System (VMS) data for 47F1, 50F1 and 49F1: EIR release

Information request and response under the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004

Information requested

Following a FOI request (Ref FOI/202100140360) submitted on 19th January which was responded to initially on the 5th February. This request was for VMS data for the year of 2020.

VMS data from September onwards in 2020 was unavailable due to migration to a new data system, however it was expected that the data would be available in March 2021. The initial response included VMS data prior to Sept 2020, and it was understood that the data for the remainder of 2020 would be received once the new system was up and running.

We would still like the VMS data, and would appreciate if we could now get VMS from September 2020 to June 2021, instead of just up to December 2020 (if this is possible).


Attached is a copy of all of the information requested.
