NSW Access Points facilitate:
- interaction of businesses with SWs in different countries utilising the CRS message
- information sharing between NSWs and other external systems
In dealing with ship formalities or ship masters or agents will need to submit information to SW in different countries. Similarly other carriers and traders. The complexity of this task has created the need for Port Community Systems and generally data transmission intermediaries to collect information from transport operators and transform them to specific formats used by local platforms.
Access Points for specific stakeholders such as ship masters or traders or carrier managers facilitate the submission of regulatory data to different NSWs in compliance with authentication and access rights directives.
