The MIG should result in a simplification and harmonisation of the administrative procedures. Join us:
In 2014, 6 Member States - Belgium, Netherlands (lead), Norway, Spain, Sweden, and United Kingdom - have develepod the first drafts of the European “Message Implementation Guide (MIG)” (common pilot 2).
- WHY: The European Message Implementation Guide (EU-MIG) enables and facilitates the MSW messages between the maritime industry and the national MSWsystems via a machine-to-machine interface.
- HOW:The EU-MIG for MSW describes the structure of the Business to MSW (B2MSW) and Response (MSW2B-RESP) messages.
- WHAT: The EU-MIG consists of a set of documents which is in total an extensive set of information.
The EU-MIG 0.95 version consists of the following set of documents (access at http://annamsw.eu/documenten/category/mig-0-95-version.html:)
- MIG_Maritime Single Window_v0.95_3_Section 1 (General) Document gives a general introduction about the EDIFACT message formatting, XML guidelines and the MSW
- MIG_Maritiem Single Window_v0.95_3_Section 2 (B2MSW Datamodel) Document gives a functional description of the B2MSW message
- MIG_Maritiem Single Window_v0.95_3_Section 2 (B2MSW XML) Document gives the XML schemas for the B2MSW message
- MIG_Maritiem Single Window_v0.95_3_Section 2 (B2MSW EDIFACT) Document gives the EDIFACT mapping of the B2MSW on the GOVCBR
- MIG_Maritiem Single Window_ v0.95_3_Section 3 (MSW2B-RESP Data model) Document gives a functional description of the MSW2B-RESP message
- MIG_Maritiem Single Window_v0.95_3_Section 3 (MSW2B-RESP XML) Document gives the XML schemas for the MSW2B-RESP message
- MIG_Maritiem Single Window_v0.95_3_Section 3 (MSW2B-RESP EDIFACT) Document gives the EDIFACT mapping of the MSW2B-RESP on the GOVCBR
- MIG_Maritiem Single Window_v0.95_3_Section 4 (Appendices) Document gives a description of the rules and conditions as referred to in the Datamodel documents of the EU-MIG for MSW
NEXT PHASE: Consultation. The objective is to validate whether the EU-MIG, version 0.95, contains the required information for implementation purposes and whether there are no large omissions or blocking issues in the defined messages.
The consultation should focus on:
- The validity of the concepts of B2MSW and MSW2B-RESP as described in document 1) chapter 6;
- Clarity of description of the EU-MIG for MSW, i.e. does it contain the required information (and explanations) to implement the B2MSW and MSW2B-RESP messages successfully;
- The check whether there are no large omissions or blocking issues in the defined messages or possible other obstructions in implementing the B2MSW and MSW2B-RESP messages in the Member States.
The consultation should not focus on the naming, formats, definition, etc. of the data elements, nor the structuring of the B2MSW and MSW2B-RESP messages. This because the data set and structure of the B2MSW and MSW2B-RESP messages are based on the leading principles as established by the Member States of the AnNa project.
