Maritime Single Windows: Facilitate Trade and Simplify Transport

The Directive 2010/65/EU sets the context for the fulfilment of ship reporting formalities in electronic format, requiring FAL Forms compliance. The transmission of relevant information (vessel, trip, cargo, health, etc) via a single window will both facilitate trade and simplify transport.

EU Member States have started preparing themselves so that no later than June 1st, 2015 the Directive is fully implemented and operational. Undoubtedly, a single point of contact or interaction between businesses and authorities goes beyond simple data exchange and the interfaces, processes and procedures form an integral part of efficient operations. Both functional and non-functional specifications need to be developed and attention should be drawn on:

  1. Establishing clear expectations within the user community for target systems in terms of Functionality, Robustness, Usability
  2. Establishing SLAs for reliability and availability amongst interdependent systems
  3. Providing user training
  4. Developing bespoke Single Window (sub)systems, fully integrated to the existing management information platforms

An effective alignment of both government and commercial systems will contribute to significant cost reductions and improvements in the revenue side for commercial entities.
