The National Maritime Single Window (NMSW) is an established and operated technical platform for receiving, exchanging and forwarding electronically information to fulfil reporting obligations regarding ships that arrive at or depart from Greek ports. The NMSW is linked to other information systems, such as the SafeSeaNet maritime information exchange system, and is the place where information is reported once by declarants and then made available electronically to the various national authorities and Member States.
The legislative framework of the NMSW is set by the Regulation (EU) 2019/1239 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 June 2019 establishing a European Maritime Single Window environment and repealing Directive 2010/65/EU, on reporting formalities for ships arriving in and/or departing from ports of the Member States. The above Directive was transposed to the Greek legislation with the p.d. 125/2010.
The Ministry of Maritime Affairs and insular Policy/Hellenic Coast Guard Headquarters/Safety of Navigation Directorate is defined as the competent authority for the development, implementation and operation of the Greek NMSW.
