EU Member States adds pressure for single window reporting

500 duplication


Led by Denmark, 13 EU Member States have called on the Commission to revise it Reporting Formalities Directive to eliminate the huge administrative burdens created as a result of the failure to harmonize data and transmission requirements among the Member States.  The current directive introduced the concept of National Single Windows as a way to harmonize reporting obligations from ships to a single electronic system.  Not unlike here in Canada, masters and maritime carriers are required to report variations of the same data over and over and in different formats for every EU-port or sometimes even differently in ports in the same country.
