BRUSSELS; September 1, 2020 — Vivansa, under its participation in the CUST-DEV3 project owned by DG TAXUD, is involved in developing the EU Single Window for Customs. Vivansa consultants, being experts in Customs modelling under the ARIS Modelling Platform, are responsible for the Business Analysis, the Business Modelling, the processes implementation, and the production of all the supporting documents for FLEGT Certificate, COI Certificate, CHED-PP Certificate. They are also responsible for the CVED/CED migration.
This activity is of major significance for the full implementation of the “Single Window” vision of DG TAXUD. Also, it affects some other eCustoms existing systems such as the National Customs Declaration Processing Systems, ICS, UCC NCTS, UCC AES, National Single Windows in the Member States and CS/RD2.
According to the DG TAXUD definition, the Single Window is defined as “a facility which allows parties involved in trade and transport to lodge standardised information and documents with a single entry point to fulfil all import, export and transit-related regulatory requirements (cf. UNECE recommendation 33). If information is electronic, then individual data elements should be submitted only once. The EU Single Window environment for Customs is focused on Customs formalities. It involves stakeholders dealing with cross-border movement of goods, DG AGRI, DG ENV and DG SANTE and their respective legislation.”
