The UK’s implementation of Directive 2010/65/EU has been launched as a pilot. This introduces an online portal, the national maritime single window, through which ships’ pre-arrival reports can be submitted to certain authorities including the UK government.
The portal is now available online.
During the pilot phase, the national maritime single window will only accept:
- FAL form 1 (‘IMO general declaration’)
- FAL form 5 (‘Crew list’)
- FAL form 6 (‘Passenger list’)
Only Border Force and Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs will have access to this data.
The accompanying guidance sets out the scope, timing, and detail of what needs to be reported. GOV.UK will be updated throughout the pilot phase of the national maritime single window project which is due to conclude in summer 2016.
