As part of ongoing efforts to enhance maritime domain awareness, we continue to improve handling of essential data contained within Notices of Arrival and Departure (NOAD).

With this release of Schema 3.4, NOAD Schema 3.2 has been retired and will no longer be accepted for submission.  Support for Schema 3.3 remains in place.
