In light of the European maritime single window, EMSA published an inforgraphic to further explain how the EMSW works; 

Specifically, the EMSW prototype is the place where all information, including the eManifest, is reported and made available to various competent authorities in the different participating Member States.

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.
