Security levels and warning notes

Current information about piracy threatened sea areas

The German Federal Ministry of the Interior (BMI) publishes periodically information on sea areas and traffic routes threatened by piracy or other hazards. These include up to date information on hazards and security levels as well as recommendations for behavior in these sea areas.

Identical information is published in the German notices to mariners (Nachrichten für Seefahrer (NfS)).

On the website of the federal police (only in German), you can find current notices on sea areas under threat. The individual warning notes of the Federal Ministry of the Interior (Bundesministerium des Innern, BMI) are available (with a click on the map) in German and English.
