Chapter 9. International NOTAMs

Section 1. General Procedures

9-1-1. RETRIEVING INTERNATIONAL NOTAMs

a. Appendix A, International NOTAM (Q) Codes, contains the NOTAM codes used for international NOTAMs.

b. International NOTAM offices that provide NOTAMs to the U.S. NOTAM office are listed in ICAO DOC 7383 and the FAA International Flight Information Manual.

c. International NOTAMs transmitted and received by the U.S. NOTAM Office are stored in the USNS, and while current, may be retrieved by both Aeronautical Fixed Telecommunication Network subscribers and FAA facilities via request/ reply. All facilities must use their particular equipment's keyboard equivalent of the closed parenthesis or the equal symbol as appropriate.

d. The USNOF issues international NOTAMs concerning the OMEGA and GPS systems as well as certain special use airspace for ARTCCs; that is, ARTCC and CARF altitude reservations (ALTRVs) and warning areas. Warning areas and ALTRVs are filed under the associated ARTCC ICAO location indicator (KZBW, KZHU, KZJX, KZLA, KZMA, KZNY, KZOA, KZSE, PAZA, PHZH, or TJZS). Information concerning permanent, long­term general data and selected foreign advisories are stored under KFDC location indicator. OMEGA and GPS information is stored under KNMH. These NOTAMs are numbered consecutively by location beginning with A0001 each year. The NOTAM number and year of issuance are separated by a forward slash; for example, A0211/00, A0002/00.
