Mandatory the adoption of a one-stop shop for the exchange of data in ports around the world

They impose amendments to the FAL Convention adopted by the Committee on the Facilitation of the IMO

The Committee on the Facilitation of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) adopted amendments to the Facilitation Convention (FAL Convention) that will make it mandatory to adopt a one-stop shop for the exchange of data in ports of all the world, with the aim of imposing an acceleration of digitalization in maritime transport. The Convention on the facilitation, which was adopted in 1965, presents recommended standards, practices and rules to simplify the formalities, procedures and documentary requirements for the arrival, parking and departure of ships at ports. The amendments approved by the Joint Committee from 9 to May 13, should come into force on the first of January 2024.

In particular, new amendments to the FAL Convention require the public authorities to establish, maintain and use one-stop systems for the electronic exchange of information and data required on the occasion of arrival, soak and departure of ships in ports. In addition, the authorities will have to combine or coordinate the electronic transmission of the data in order to ensure that such information is transmitted or supplied and reused only once in the brokest possible way.
