ANNA - Advanced National Networks for Administrations


The overall objective is the adoption of the national Maritime Single Window and electronic data transmission for the fulfilment of reporting requirements for vessels entering and departing European ports in accordance with EC Directive 2010/65/EU.


The objective of the Action is to gain consensus between participating countries and develop cooperation measures to be implemented leading to the simplification and harmonisation of reporting and thereby a reduction of the administrative burden through:

  • The development of a common implementation framework for EU Directive 2010/65/EU to ensure appropriate (European) interconnectivity
  • The development of national scenarios and a mechanism for gauging degree of national implementation
  • Interaction and involvement of administrations and business where necessary in accordance with this Directive
  • Development of a 2015+ strategy, possibly connecting the various national Maritime Single Windows to national logistics platforms, to be included under the Master Plan "Extended Collaboration"
  • Trade facilitation
