CDB, IMPACS and OECS partner to establish Maritime Single Window

A maritime single window will be established in the Eastern Caribbean in the upcoming months says Director of the Projects Department at the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), Mr. Daniel Best.

His announcement came at the launch of the Establishment of Integrated Border Systems in the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) Project on Wednesday November 25, 2020 at CDB headquarters.

The project will create a maritime single window solution which will consolidate existing systems for advanced passenger and cargo information and other complementary structures into a single portal accessible to the various agencies involved in border control operations.

The OECS is the first to receive support from CDB-managed CARIFORUM-European Union (EU) Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) and the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME) Standby Facility for Capacity Building financed by the 11th European Development Fund (EDF).
