I Have applied for my GMDSS GOC renewal on 18/07/2009. I already got cert of renewal dated 20/08/2009. This cert is expiring on 03/08/2014.
Now I want to apply online for my GMDSS GOC renewal again but WPC site still showing my 2009 application "Under process" and so I can not proceed further with online application.
I visited with this complaint to regional WPC office at Gorai Road, Borivali (W), mumbai, but they neither entertained my complaint nor given me any guidance. Please advice.
I have tried calling them many times. Most of the time no one picks up. Will keep trying. Will update you with any progress. One of my friends tried sending them a screenshot of the error message, still waiting for any response. Kindly share if you happen to get some solution.
I recieved my renewed GOC last week. I suggest you send a letter along with a print out of the screen shot
Thanks Joseph. I too have sent my application alongwith the error snapshot printout and a note about the problem. It's been 3 weeks now.Hope I get mine too. Thank You very much for the feedback,appreciate it.
Does anyone have any recent experience with GOC renewal. My application was showing 'Under process' from my last renewal in 2011 and so I could not apply online. I completed all the other formalities and sent the application along with a screenshot of the error and a covering letter on 1st August. Until now I have received no information on the status of my application. Can anyone please advise if there is someone who I can contact to find out the status of my application? I have tried the email ids and phone numbers on the WPC website but there has been no response. Thanks.
An RTI to WPC by Capt Pawan Duggirala clarifies that GMDSS GOC renewal time frame by WPC is only 15 days however my past experience is that it takes 30 to 40 days to receive GMDSS renewal letter.
If WPC website is showing "Under process" after your last renewal it is advised to ignore and send your application through post with screenshot of this error. While mariners have got their GOC renewal letter within 30-40 days, there is no available mean to track GMDSS GOC renewal status! The only way it seems to get the application status is through online RTI to Wireless Planning and coordination Wing (WPC). Best of Luck.
