AnNa is an EU Member States driven project - in close co-operation with the European Commission and EMSA - to support the effective implementation of the EC Directive 2010/65/EU (Reporting Formalities for Ships arriving in/departing from EU ports).
The AnNa project is an EC TEN-T Motorways of the Sea 2012 Multi Annual Call project.
AnNa fosters a harmonized approach for Administrative Facilitation:
· to reduce red tape for users (business)
· to parse IT languages and
· to exchange data between national (Maritime Single Window) networks.
