B2MoS project 2nd seminar on the implementation of the National Maritime Single Window in Barcelona

The Escola Europea de Short Sea Shipping (2E3S), together with Puertos del Estado and the Port of Barcelona, held yesterday –June 15th– a seminar on the National Maritime Single Window and its implementation in the Port of Barcelona. The seminar, which took place at the facilities of the Catalan infrastructure, was organised as a part of B2MoS (Business to Motorways of the Sea) European project.

The session was attended by 44 members of the port community (shipping agents, government agencies, security forces, Port of Barcelona, PortIC, etc.) and it has served to clarify the doubts that may have arisen from the launch of the Maritime Single Window on May 5th.

The event, moderated by the Director of Quality and Information Systems of the Port of Barcelona, Rafael Gomis, has consisted of a presentation on B2MoS and AnNa projects, both involved in the implementation of the Maritime Single Window, by Adriana Diaz, head of Quality of the 2E3S; on the national single window, by Jaime Luezas, head of Services and Port Community of Puertos del Estado; and on the implementation of the PIDE in Barcelona, by José Antonio Arias, from the port itself. This introductory information part was followed by a round table, which was attended, in addition to the speakers, by Chelo Otero, commercial director of PortIC; Elena Delgado, marine safety inspector of the Harbour Master; Jaume Bagot, head of Sectorial Processes Improving of Port of Barcelona; and Jose Maria Rovira, head of Maritime Operations of the Port. The following discussion, open to the audience, has lasted until noon.

This seminar is the second developed in Barcelona and follows the trail of the one that took place on April in Ports de la Generalitat, as well as in other European port communities, as the ones in Valencia and Tarragona, in Spain, Rostock and Bremen, in Germany, and Ravenna, in Italy, under Directive 65 of the European Union. The conferences have been coordinated and organized in cooperation with the respective port authorities, as well as steering committees, federal states and service providers, and aim to provide to the port communities a better understanding of new technologies and possible solutions provided to the development of the operations, in addition to offer training materials on amendments regarding the management of ports, port community systems (PCS) and business systems introduced to meet the new demands of the EU Directive 2010/65 / EU. The workshops are part of the Activity 4 – Communication and Training B2MoS project.
