EMSA published an infographic explaining the European Maritime Single Window environment (EMSWe).
s EMSA said, the main aim of the EMSWe Regulation is to lay down harmonised rules for the provision of the information that is required for port calls, in particular by ensuring that the same data sets can be reported to each Maritime National Single Window in the same way.
This Regulation also aims to facilitate the transmission of information between declarants, relevant authorities and the providers of port services in the port of call, and other Member States.
The European maritime single window environment, which was agreed in early February 2019, aims to address the issue of numerous, non-harmonised reporting obligations by linking the existing national maritime single windows together in a coordinated and harmonised way.
The reform will improve interoperability between various systems, making it much easier to share and reuse data.
The Maritime single window covers the information flows between:
- The ship data providers, such as ship agent, master, shipping company;
- the relevant public authorities covering the port of call;
- Other Member States via SafeSeaNet.
