JOINT INDUSTRY POSITION ON REGULATION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND COUNCIL ESTABLISHING A EUROPEAN MARITIME SINGLE WINDOW ENVIRONMENT


10 September 2018

IPCSA is delighted to be one of the seven leading Maritime Trade Associations that have agreed a Joint Position on the DG MOVE proposal for a regulation on establishing a Maritime Single Window Environment and setting out a clear position that will benefit the whole of the Maritime and related supply chain industry in Europe.

Brussels – 10/09/2018

The above-signed organisations welcome the decision of the European Commission to repeal Directive 2010/65 and replace the existing Directive with a Regulation establishing a European Single Window Environment. The decision of the European Commission to base its proposal on existing systems (National Single Windows) is correct and will allow industry and Member States to continue to develop and innovate existing systems. However, the signatories of this paper see a need to further clarify some key aspects before the legal text can achieve its goal of reducing the administrative burden on maritime transport whilst ensuring the negative effects of the previous initiative are not repeated.
