GISIS Port Reception Facility Database


The Internet-based Port Reception Facility Database (PRFD) went live on 1 March 2006, as a module of the IMO Global Integrated Shipping Information System (GISIS). The database provides data on facilities for the reception of all categories of ship-generated waste. The public is allowed free access, following a simple initial registration, to all the information on a view-only basis. Data for reception facilities can be updated only by the respective Member States via a log-in passwordInformation on password administration for Member States has been made available in Circular Letter 2892 and in Circular Letter 2683​.

The circulars and the database are aimed at improving the rate of reporting alleged on inadequacies of reception facilities so that the problem can be tackled more effectively.
