When is this action of interest to you?

You are a European public administration that wants effective implementation and enforcement of the EU legislation in the fields of maritime safety and security, border control and fisheries control, customs and environment. You would like to have access to cross-sector and cross-border data related to maritime operations and avoid duplication of data collection.

You are working in industry and you would participate in developing appropriate interoperability standards, enhance competitiveness and demand for surveillance capabilities.

What is this action about?

The global action’s objective is to establish a Common Information Sharing Environment (CISE) for enhancing awareness of what is happening at sea as a contribution to efficiency in maritime operations and eventually safer, more secure and cleaner seas.
In line with the EU Digital Agenda, this translates into interoperable and trusted cross-sector and cross-border data exchange between public administrations across seven policy areas (maritime safety and security, marine environment and pollution preparedness and response, fisheries control, border control, law enforcement, customs and defence) within the EU maritime domain.
The cross-sector aspect constitutes the major innovative aspect of the CISE. Public authorities could substantially enhance their sectoral awareness with information already gathered by authorities from other sectors.
The CISE shall provide an information environment that allows for such seamless and even automated cross-sector exchange of readable information between a more than 400 relevant public authorities throughout the EU/EEA.
