Brussels, 8 July 2019

On 08 July, FEPORT participated in the High-Level Steering group meeting on Single Windows. The meeting was a joint meeting between the HLSG on Governance of the Digital Maritime System and Services and the Customs Business Group. The objective of the Single Window group is to ensure that single window initiatives (such as the National Maritime Single Windows and Customs Single Windows initiatives) are aligned.

FEPORT supports the objective of the European Commission to ensure that the various Single Window initiatives are aligned. FEPORT believes that this will assist in minimising the number of system updates required by trade, thereby allowing for trade to focus on how to innovate and improve systems.
