Tou­rism con­trol during 2011 sea­son

The Sysselmannen’s field inspec­tors have visi­ted 85 ships and boats during the 2011 sum­mer sea­son, main­ly on the west coast, but also in more remo­te regi­ons inclu­ding Hin­lo­pen. Per­mits, ship papers and was­te manage­ment rou­ti­nes are among­st what the field inspec­tors check rou­ti­ne­ly. Addi­tio­nal­ly, pre­sence of aut­ho­ri­ties is shown to all visi­tors, who are encou­ra­ged to com­ply with rele­vant laws and regu­la­ti­ons and to move careful­ly in the Spits­ber­gen envi­ron­ment. Con­trols also include camps and rese­arch acti­vi­ties.

The inspec­tors were in touch with 2403 per­sons and had only two com­plaints: one group had estab­lished their camp in in Gru­mant­by­en (cul­tu­ral heri­ta­ge and accor­din­gly pro­tec­ted). Ano­ther group had cut drai­na­ge tren­ches around their tents and left them at depar­tu­re. The ope­ra­tor was reques­ted to con­duct a clean-up of the site.
