Looking for feasible future projects

on .

The AnNa project has started to develop potential projects for realising (post-2015) further simplification, harmonisation and cooperation between authority sectors. These projects should have a direct influence on the movement of goods and passengers, such as Customs, cross-border, health, sanitation, etc. Specific topics may include e.g. the single transport document. Specific items will include consideration of the Customs Entry Summary Declaration and its relation to the Maritime Single Window and (current and potential) role of Port Community Systems.

The result will be a Master Plan Extended Collaboration (2015+) – project book - incorporating:

-        The assessed results of the pilots (best practice and/or lessons learnt from each pilot (Activity 2).

-        The results of Sub-activities 3.1 and 3.2

-        The input provided with the various stakeholders within the project (Activity 4).

-        provide a roadmap for the future development of national Maritime Single Windows post-2015. This roadmap will provide a clear identification of the necessary steps to be undertaken

The following key tasks are to be executed :

  1. Co-operation and consultation with various TEN-T MoS projects, i.e. WIDERMoS and B2MoS, assessing opportunities for business involvement in future projects and enhancing interconnection.
  2. Potential for further development of “single reporting” e.g. potential to use Departure Notifications for Arrival next (EU) ports
  3. Identification of indicators to measure progress in maritime single window development, i.e. project identification
  4. Incorporation and clustering of the inventories and studies performed in the AnNa Master Plan 2015;
  5. Synergize the national Maritime Single window applications within the context of the EC transport policy and customs policy goals, i.e. e-Freight agenda, TEN-T Connecting Europe Facility, Horizon 2020, Customs Code Networks.
  6. Develop a perspective on how to upgrade the various national Maritime Single Windows onto a European Maritime Single Window
  7. Identify aspects for (further) implementation, detailing the agreed standardisation and harmonisation efforts.
  8. Interfacing with non-EU States:
    1. global, e.g. Singapore, Korea (i.e. to fulfil customs reporting 24hr before departure);EU
    2. neighbouring States e.g. Mediterranean.
