Single Window

Functionality

The Single Window system enables Economic Operators to submit regulatory documents only once. These regulatory documents are typically customs declarations, applications for permits, certificates of origin, trading invoices, etc.

The Single Window can also handle the workflows related to these documents involving the connected governmental organizations, which are the Customs and other ones like the Chamber of Commerce, Health and Environment Agencies, Banks, etc.

Purpose

The purpose of the Single Window is:

  • To facilitate Trade, as Economic Operators have a single point of communication instead of dealing separately with the various government authorities at multiple locations.
  • To increase the efficiency of the government by saving time of all involved parties.
  • To save cost
  • To improve the transparency of processes and ensure equal treatment of Economic Operators, as the execution of each process is logged, and can be monitored against thresholds.
