§1

This Tariff specifies port fees for use of port infrastructure, established and collected by Port of Gdansk Authority SA pursuant to the Act dated 20.12.1996 on ports and sea havens (unified text, Journal of Laws no. 110 dated 18 July 2002, item 967 with later amendments).

  1. Tariff rates are net and given in EUR.

  3. Payment settlements pursuant to this Tariff are governed by the regulations on foreign currency and financial regulation binding in the Republic of Poland.

  4. Minimum invoice value amounts to EUR 20.

  5. In order to ensure correct calculation of port charges, every ship entering the port is obliged to deliver to the Port's Chief Dispatcher a written notification of arrival or departure (except for ships where provisions of §4 clauses 2 and 3, and §7 clauses 2 and 3 apply). Electronic notifications of arrival/departure are accepted by e-mail at glowny.dyspozytor@portgdansk.pl or by fax at +48 58 737 63 76.
    Notifications should contain the following information:
    • Name and IMO number of ship
    • Type of ship and ship dimensions (length overall, maximum breadth, draught on entry to port, draught per summer freeboard mark)
    • Gross tonnage, net tonnage and DWT
    • Ship owner's name, agent's name and address, and other contact details (phone number, e-mail address)
    • Name of previous and next port of call
    • Short description of cargo, quantity and kind
    • Number of passengers
    • Names of wharfs or jetties where the vessel will dock
    • Purpose of call
    • Payer data
    Seagoing ships are additionally obliged to provide information on waste on board via the Polish Harbour Information and Control System.

    Notifications of arrival or departure and information on waste are provided by the ship master or the owner's representative - agent.

  6. The basis for determining port charges calculated per 1 GT is the relevant valid International Tonnage Certificate or valid ship safety certificate (karta bezpieczenstwa), which is to be delivered to the Port of Gdansk Authority SA, by the ship master or his/her representative - agent.

    For double bottom tankers or tankers with segregated ballast tanks, the basis for determining port charges is gross tonnage (GT) reduced by the volume of double bottom or segregated ballast tanks, specified in:
    • Recognised certificate
    • International Tonnage Certificate which under the column "Remarks" includes an entry compliant to IMO resolution no. A.747 (18), provided that the double bottom satisfies the requirements of Regulation 13 F of Annex no. I to Protocol of 1978 to the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL), adopted in London on 2 November 1973, and Protocol of 1978 referring to the convention adopted in London on 17 February 1978 (Journal of Laws of 1987 no. 17 item 101).

    The maximum basis for calculating charges for passenger ships and deep-sea container vessels is 60,000 GT.

  7. In determining port charges for ships holding a tonnage certificate specifying gross register tonnage (GRT), 1 GRT = 1 GT

  8. If the Tonnage Certificate gives varied ship tonnage or the ship has two tonnage certificates, higher tonnage is the basis for calculating charges.

  9. In case gross tonnage (GT) cannot be established for:
    1. A seagoing ship - charges are levied on ship's gross volume (V) as resultant from the product of her length overall (L), maximum breadth (B) and the vessel's summer freeboard mark (D), approximating upwards to a full m3 according to the formula stipulating that 1 GT = 1 m3 gross volume V,
    2. Harbour and inland navigation vessels - charges are levied on ship's gross volume (V) as resultant from the product of her length overall (L), maximum breadth (B) and moulded depth (H) approximating upwards to a full m3 according to the formula stipulating that 1 GT = 0.25 m3 gross volume V.

  10. In case of disputes ship data in Lloyd's Shipping Register applies.
