Incident reporting

A common reporting form has been created that should be used for maritime incidents that occur in or close to the waters of:

  • ABP Southampton 
  • The Queen’s Harbour Master, Portsmouth
  • Portsmouth International Port
  • Cowes Harbour Commissioners
  • Langstone Harbour

The form can be downloaded below, and can be used to report all types of incident or accident, near miss or potential risk. Sections 1-3 and 11 must be completed followed by the relevant section for the type of incident. If you are reporting a leisure or recreational incident the shorter reporting format at section 12 can be used. In this case there is no need to fill in sections 1-3 or 11. 

Once the form is complete, please forward it to the harbour master in whose area the incident occurred.
