Council of the EU makes progress on maritime single window

The Council of the European Union has reached agreement on a proposal to bring together all reporting formalities associated with a port call across all Member State’s different ports, under a system called a European maritime single window.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“A single reporting window for ships will significantly reduce the administrative burden on maritime transport,” said Norbert Hofer, Minister for Transport, Innovation and Technology of Austria, and President of the Council.

“We are creating conditions for increased application of the ‘once-only’ principle, so that ships would only need to report once per port call and the same information would be reused for subsequent port calls within the EU.”

The introduction of a European maritime single window environment will aim to address the issue of numerous, non-harmonised reporting obligations by linking the existing national maritime single windows together in a coordinated and harmonised way.

This reform would lead to improved interoperability between the various systems currently employed, making it easier to share and reuse data.

The Council notes that the general approach that has now been approved reflects its position for further negotiations with the European Parliament. Both institutions must agree on the final text before any measures can proceed further.{/mprestriction}

  • EIZO secures LR type approval for maritime monitors

    As part of the European Union (EU) Recognised Organisation (RO) Mutual Recognition Type Approval scheme, EIZO Corporation has been awarded type approval from Lloyd’s Register (LR) for its 19 and 25.5 inch maritime monitors for an Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) with radar applications, the first European certificate for electrical equipment in Japan.

    The EU RO Mutual Recognition Type Approval scheme covers type approval certification on selected components and equipment for which mutually agreed technical requirements have been developed and agreed by all stakeholders in the EU RO Group, ensuring consistency for different types of equipment.

    EIZO’s current line of DuraVision ECDIS monitors (FD2603W, FDU2603WT, FDS1904, FDS1904T) were issued the certificate. These monitors are built specifically for harsh maritime conditions and are calibrated at EIZO’s own factory to meet the highly specialised requirements of ECDIS systems. EIZO offers optional optical bonding for each model which is also produced in-house.

    Kazuhide Shimura, executive operating officer, EIZO Corporation commented: “Meeting requirements for major maritime classifications such as LR is extremely important in demonstrating that our products are proven for use in harsh environments. EU RO MR ensures that EIZO continues to provide a high degree of customer assurance to system integrators and end users in the maritime market, regardless of their location.”

    Fumio Kure, LR’s general manager in Japan said: “We are proud that LR was able to issue this certificate at this time as we had to rely on remote surveying capability for the approval as surveyor attendance was hindered by COVID-19 challenges. Congratulations to EIZO for obtaining EU RO MR Type Approval certificate in addition to LR class type approval.”
