Recommendation No. 33, UNECE through its Center for Trade Facilitation and Electronic Business (UN/CEFACT)
The Single Window concept refers to a facility that allows parties involved in trade and transport to lodge standardized information and documents with a single entry point to fulfil all import, export, and transit-related regulatory requirements. If information is electronic, then individual data elements should only be submitted once.
This concept is internationally recognized and supported by many international organizations concerned with trade facilitation. Among these organizations are the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), The United Nations Centre for Trade Facilitation and Electronic Business (UN/CEFACT), and The World Customs Organization (WCO).
The National Single Window for Foreign Trade Facilitation "Nafeza" is an integrated information platform to achieve the integration and coordination of procedures and information exchange between all parties that are involved in the foreign trade system in Egypt, and allowing the business and trade community to submit all documents and transactions (customs / control authorities / ports) once through a logistics services center (or via Online “e-portal”) to fulfill all regulatory requirements related to the release of goods.
The platform operates in accordance with the international standards of trade related procedures and customs requirements for the clearance of goods, to convert Egypt into “One Logistical Area”.
The development of platform depends on two main pillars:
1- Business procedures reengineering and governance,
2- Platform elements development (e-Portal / Core Logistics Application / Central Integration System / Data Warehouses / Information Infrastructure / Logistics Services Centers…, etc.)
The Logistics Services Center is a new concept for business transactions that are related to the release of goods through the National Single Window System for Foreign Trade (Nafeza), which aims to provide services faster and a modern logistical experience.
