How to Request Authorization
The interested company must request the issuance of an annual authorization (download the form here) by sending an application with a €16.00 stamp duty to the Port System Authority – Safety, Surveillance, and Control Area, Building 13, 30123 Venice.
The documentation listed above, as stipulated by APV Order No. 173/2003, marked with “*“, does not need to be provided as it is already required in the registration process for the AdSP register pursuant to art. 68 C.N..
NASPA will notify the interested company, after consultation with the Harbor Master’s Office and, if necessary, with regard to competence, the ULSS (Local Health Authority) and/or the Port Chemist, of the issuance of the annual authorization, which is only valid for operations at the specified port company in the request.
If the company intends to use toxic gases in areas of other companies, it must submit a separate application for each of them.
