The captain or ship’s agent shall submit a copy of the manifest to AIP. If a manifest does not exist the captain shall give a pledge to AIP confirming the type and quantity of goods unloaded or loaded on his ship. If the Port Director so decides he may have the quantity of goods estimated as he deems fit.
If that quantity proves to be greater than stated, the owner of the goods shall pay for the extra charges.
If a consignment consists of more than one type of goods which are not stated separately when submitted for the determination of wharfage fees, the type liable for the highest wharfage fees shall be used as a reference for charging.

The captain, owner, representative (agent) and operator of a ship are responsible for payment of charges due to AIP in connection with it. On entering the harbour, the captain is obliged to provide the Port Director with information on the ship in accordance with the provisions of Article 33, paragraph 5 of the Harbour Regulation No. 326/2004 and submit the ship’s Certificates of Nationality and Registration to him, if he requests them on account of inadequate information about it. The Port Director is entitled to retain the certificates until the dues are paid. Any resulting delays and damage are solely on the responsibility and at the expense of the payer of the dues.
Dues shall be paid before the ship departs from the harbour and a captain cannot expect to be provided with municipal or customs services for his ship except on presentation of documentary proof from the Port Director that all dues have been rendered to the port.
Wharfage fees are liable on all goods that are unloaded, delivered or transported, or otherwise moved by sea or on land, within the harbour boundaries. Wharfage fees are classified as the debt of a ship before it commences sailing, unless otherwise negotiated. Wharfage fees are the responsibility of the transporter of a consignment and delivery of a good without payment of them is on his responsibility.
If goods are transferred from one ship to another, wharfage fees are to be paid by the party unloading them.
Wharfage fees on goods arriving in the harbour fall due when the ship transporting them arrives in the harbour, and wharfage fees on goods leaving the harbour fall due when they are aboard ship. The captain and ship’s agent may not deliver goods before dues on them are paid.
Payment of all dues according to this schedule may always be secured by legal execution in consequence of a court order.
A ship’s dues are secured with maritime lien or a pledge in its insurance deposit. Such pledges have priority over contractual pledges for two years, cf. the provisions of Article 21, paragraph 2 of the Harbour Act No. 61/2003. AIP may insist on further guarantees for the payment of dues if this is considered to be warranted.
All charges stated in this schedule are exclusive of value-added tax. AIP is obliged to collect VAT on all the charges in this schedule, cf. Article 3, item 3 of Act No. 50/1988 on Value-Added Tax.
