1.   PART I: MESSAGE IMPLEMENTATION MANUAL CONVENTION

1.1.   Introduction

The technical specifications define the structure of four messages for electronic ship reporting in inland navigation, based on the UN/EDIFACT message structure (see also chapter 1.2) and customised, where required, for the purpose of inland navigation.

In the case that electronic ship reporting in inland navigation is required by national or international law, these technical specifications shall be applied.

The messages are:

1.

(Dangerous) goods reporting (IFTDGN) — ERINOT

2.

Passenger and crew lists (PAXLST)

3.

ERINOT response and receipt message (APERAK) — ERIRSP

4.

Berth management port notification (BERMAN)

In the Appendices (message implementation manuals) the exact use of the messages, data elements and codes is defined in order to ensure a common understanding and usage of the messages.

The use of XML technology is another possibility. The standardisation of XML message definition for the purpose of electronic ship reporting in inland navigation is dealt with by the relevant working group supporting the Committee established pursuant to Article 7 of Council Directive 91/672/EEC of 16 December 1991 on the reciprocal recognition of national boatmasters’ certificates for the carriage of goods and passenger.

1.2.   UN/EDIFACT message structure

The following elaborations are based on ISO 9735.

UN/EDIFACT messages are composed of segments. The structure of a message is described in a branching diagram indicating the position and the mutual relationship of the segments and segment groups.

For each segment the data elements are defined which are to be used in a message. Some data elements are combined to form composite data elements. The messages follow a fixed syntax as defined in ISO 9735.

A segment and a data element within a segment are either mandatory or conditional. Mandatory segments and/or data elements contain important data for a receiving application and shall be filled with sensible, in other words valid data. Conditional elements need not to be present in a message.

Each message starts with two or three segments, the ‘interchange header’ (UNB) and the ‘message header’ (UNH). Where required also the ‘service string advice’ (UNA) is used as a first segment to define which character sets are used in the message. Each message finishes with the segments ‘message trailer’ (UNT) and ‘interchange trailer’ (UNZ). Thus each message is contained in one interchange, and an interchange contains only one single message.

1.2.1.   Description of the segments and data elements

In the message descriptions the following indicators are used:

Column 1 contains the name in form of the acronym (TAG) of the , represented by the hierarchy of segment names on higher levels. This indication is derived from the branching diagram.

Column 2 contains the name in form of the acronym (TAG) of the , the number of the and the number of the .

Column 3 indicates the on which the segment is situated in the branching diagram.

Column 4 indicates whether the segment or data element is (M) or (C).

Column 5 defines the of the data element.

Column 6 gives the UN/EDIFACT of the data element. The names of segments are written in bold upper cases, the names of composite data elements are written in normal upper cases and the names of data elements are written in normal lower cases.

Column 7 gives a of the data elements (fields). If a fixed value is to be used, the value is indicated in quotes.

1.2.2.   Syntax

The full description of the data elements in the service segments is part of ISO 7372 Trade Data Elements Directory.

1.2.2.1.   Character sets

For the characters in the sets below, the 7-bit codes in the basic code table in ISO 646 shall be used, unless the corresponding 8-bit codes in ISO 6937 and ISO 8859 or other bit codes are specifically agreed between the interchanging partners through the usage of the UNA segment.

1.2.2.2.   Interchange structures

The service string advice, UNA, and the service segments UNB to UNZ shall appear in the order stated in an interchange. See chapter 1.2.2.3.

There may be several functional groups within an interchange.

A message consists of segments. The structures for segments and for data elements therein are shown in chapter 1.2.2.5.

1.2.2.3.   Interchange

An interchanges consists of:

Service String Advice UNA Conditional

– – – – – – – – – – Interchange Header UNB Mandatory

| – – – – – – Message Header UNH Mandatory

| | User Data Segments described in the Annex implementation manual

| – – – – – – Message Trailer UNT Mandatory

– – – – – – – – – – Interchange Trailer UNZ Mandatory

1.2.2.4.   Order of segments and groups of segments within a message

Message structure diagrams and the order of the segments following the processing rules can be found in the Appendices.

1.2.2.5.   Segment structure

Segment Tag: Mandatory

Segment Code: Mandatory component data element

Component D.E. separator: Conditional

Nesting and repeating indication: Conditional component data element(s)

Data element separator: Mandatory

Simple or composite data elements: Mandatory or Conditional as specified in the relevant segments directory and implementation manual

Segment Terminator: Mandatory

1.2.2.6.   Data element structure

Simple Data Element:

Mandatory or Conditional as specified in the relevant implementation guideline.

Composite Data Element:

In accordance with segments directory and as specified in the implementation manual.

Component data elements and Component data element separators:

Mandatory (see restriction below)

Data element separator: Mandatory (see restriction below)

Restriction:

There shall be no component data element separator after the last component data element in a composite data element and no data element separator after the last data element in a segment.

1.2.2.7.   Compressing

In data elements for which the Data Elements Directory specifies variable length and in the case that there are no other restrictions, insignificant character positions shall be suppressed. In the case of insignificant characters, leading zeroes and trailing spaces shall be suppressed.

However, a single zero before a decimal sign is significant and a zero may be significant (e.g. to indicate a temperature) if so stated in the data elements specification of the implementation manuals.

When compressing messages, the following rules shall be followed.

(a)   Exclusion of segments

Conditional segments containing no data shall be omitted (including their segment tags).

(b)   Exclusion of data elements by omission

Data elements are identified by their sequential positions within the segment as stated in the Segment Directory. If a conditional data element is omitted and if it is followed by another data element, its position shall be indicated by retention of its data element separator.

Tag+DE+DE+++DE+DE+DE’

|_|_______________ These two data elements are omitted

(c)   Exclusion of data elements by truncation

If one or more conditional data elements at the end of a segment are omitted, the segment may be truncated by the segment terminator, i.e. contiguous trailing data element separators are not required to be transmitted.

Tag+DE+DE+++DE' Using the example from 2.2.7 b, the last two data elements have been omitted and by '|____ the segment has been truncated.

(d)   Exclusion of component data elements by omission

Component data elements are identified by their given sequential positions within a composite data element. If a conditional component data element is omitted and is followed by another component data element, its given position shall be represented by its component data element separator.

Tag+DE+CE:CE+CE:::CE'

|_|_____ Two component data elements omitted in the last composite data element.

(e)   Exclusion of component data elements by truncation

One or more conditional component data elements at the end of a composite data element may be excluded by truncation by the data element separator or, if at the end of a segment, by the segment terminator.

Tag+DE+CE+CE' The last component data element in the first composite data element |___|___ has been omitted and also three component data elements in the last composite data element. In both cases the composite data elements have been truncated, indicated in the first case by the data element separator and in the second case by the segment terminator.

1.2.2.8.   Representation of numeric data element values

(a)   Decimal sign

The ISO representation for a decimal sign is the comma (,) but a point on the line (.) is allowed (see ISO 31-0: 1981). Both these characters are part of the Level A and B sets. When the service string advice, UNA, is used, its third character specifies the character used in the interchange. It is however strongly recommended to use as a default the (,) to represent a decimal sign under all circumstances. The decimal sign shall not be counted as a character of the value when computing the maximum field length of a data element. However, allowance shall be made for the character in transmission and reception. When a decimal sign is transmitted, there shall be at least one digit before and after the decimal sign. For values represented by integers only, neither a decimal sign nor decimal zeroes are used unless there is a need to indicate the degree of precision.

Preferred: 0,5 and 2 and 2,0 Not allowed: ,5 or .5 or 2, or 2.

(b)   Triad separator

Triad separators shall not be used in interchange.

Allowed: 2500000 Not allowed: 2,500,000 or 2.500.000 or 2 500 000

(c)   Sign

Numeric data element values shall be regarded as positive. Although conceptually a deduction is negative, it shall be represented by a positive value and such cases shall be indicated in the data elements directory. lf a value is to be indicated as negative, it shall in transmission be immediately preceded by a minus sign, e.g. -112. The minus sign shall not be counted as a character of the value when computing the maximum field length of a data element. However, allowance shall be made for the character in transmission and reception.

Legend:

1.3.   Messages

1.3.1.   ERINOT

The ERI notification message (ERINOT) shall be used for the reporting of voyage related information and of information on dangerous and non-dangerous cargo carried on-board vessels sailing on inland waterways. The ERINOT message is a specific use of the UN/EDIFACT ‘International Forwarding and Transport Dangerous Goods Notification (IFTDGN)’ message as it has been developed within the PROTECT (1) organisation. The ERINOT message is based on the EDIFACT directory 98.B and the PROTECT implementation version 1.0.

For the data and codes contained in the message applications based on these message specifications, use has been made of the UN Directory D98B.

The ERINOT message encompasses the following types:

transport notification from vessel to authority (identifier ‘VES’), from ship to shore;

transport notification from carrier to authority (identifier ‘CAR’), from shore to shore;

passage notification (identifier ‘PAS’), from authority to authority.

The following message functions show what sort of message can be expected:

new message (identifier ‘9’);

modification of message (identifier ‘5’);

cancellation of message (identifier ‘1’).

1.3.2.   PAXLST

The PAXLST message is based on the UN/EDIFACT message PAXLST. It shall be used for the exchange of data in inland navigation between the captain/skipper or carrier and designated authorities such as ISPS terminals, customs, immigration, police.

The message shall be also used to transfer passenger/crew data from a designated authority in the country of departure to the appropriate authorities in the country of arrival of the means of transport.

1.3.3.   ERIRSP

The ERI response message (ERIRSP) is derived from the UN/EDIFACT APERAK message. It may be generated by for instance a RIS centre. The response messages with respect to the different functions (new, modification or cancellation) of the ERINOT message have all the same structure. The response to a ‘modification’ or a ‘cancellation’ contains information whether or not the ‘modification’ or ‘cancellation’ has been processed by the receiving system.

1.3.4.   BERMAN

The Berth Management (BERMAN) message combines the pre-arrival notification respectively general declaration into one single notification which is based on the EDIFACT message BERMAN from the UN/EDIFACT D04B directory. The implementation manual is based on the guidelines as defined by the PROTECT group.

The BERMAN message shall be sent by vessels sailing on inland waterways before arriving at or departing from a berth or a port and provides information about the time of arrival and the services required to ensure a prompt handling, to support procedures and to facilitate controls.

The message incorporates the legal requirements regarding the notification of a ship to a port. It supports one request for the ship — be it for entering the port, berthing on arrival of the ship, leaving the berth on departure of the ship or shifting of berths for the ship within the port or for transiting only through the port area. The arrival and transit notification contains all details regarding the movement of the ship from outside the port area to the first berth in the port area or in case of transit to the point where the vessel is leaving.

Required additional services to be arranged for arrival at a berth can be specified. The estimated time of arrival (ETA) at the entry point and where required leaving point and previous place of call of the ship are required information elements.

1.4.   Amendment procedures

Proposals for amendments to the message implementation manuals shall be sent together with an explanation, why the amendment is needed to the chairperson of the Electronic Reporting expert group.

The chairperson shall distribute the proposal to the members of the expert group as well as to the European Commission.

As regards the expert group, the relevant procedures as defined in the Terms of Reference for the Electronic Reporting expert group shall apply.

The European Commission will proceed with any amendment in accordance with the procedures established in the RIS Directive. In this context, due account shall be taken of the work of the expert group.

2.   PART II: CODES AND REFERENCES

2.1.   Introduction

In Part II the various codes and references which shall be used in electronic ship reporting for inland navigation are defined. The usage of codes and reference numbers does serve the purpose of unambiguousness. The use of codes and references will lead to less misinterpretations and easy translation into any language. Therefore the usage of codes and references is mandatory for those codes indicated in the messages and included here and strongly recommended whenever other data has to be interchanged between various computer applications and between parties using different languages provided that the relevant data element allows an existing and published code value. In the following, the definitions and descriptions of the used codes and references are described, for the actual code tables a reference will be made towards the relevant chapters of this Annex or where available an URL (Internet address) will be given.

2.2.   Clarifications

2.2.1.   Terminology

The following clarifications serve to ensure that the meaning of the used information elements in electronic ship reporting is clear and unambiguous and that through clear descriptions the maintenance of data and references is facilitated and ensured.

1.   Data Dictionary

A data dictionary is in essence a centralised storage of information on data such as the meaning, the links with other data, the source, the usage, and the classification. The dictionary is used for the efficient planning, management and evaluation of the collection, recording and usage of data. The data dictionary or lexicon is primary and originally a book containing words arranged in alphabetical order with definitions, etymologies and other information.

2.   Data Element Directory

A data element directory is in essence a book with directions listing names and particulars of a specific group of information elements. In information technology it is also a table with identification symbols and pointers to the matching data. The TDED (Trade Data Elements Directory) ISO 7372 has an adopted agreed set of standard data elements for various areas of application. It contains a number, a data element name, a description of the concept to explain the agreed meaning in order to determine the content of the information (data value) to be provided with the data element. A specification of the character representation of the data value, with indication of space (number of characters) is provided, together with the synonyms of data element names where appropriate and used.

3.   Data repository

A data repository is in essence a place where things are stored, e.g. a warehouse. Quite often the term data warehouse is used to indicate the place of storage of common data. The data repository is used in the development of XML and ebXML to indicate the place of storage of the so called core components. The first catalogues of core components are available as draft proposals for standards, see also www.unece.org/cefact/. Under ebXML a repository item is associated with a set of standard metadata defined as attributes of the registry object class. These attributes reside outside of the actual repository and provide descriptive information about the repository item.

4.   Glossary

A list and explanation of e.g. difficult technical terms, it is often described as a partial dictionary. The terms are often alphabetically listed to be used for reference in projects, books or studies.

5.   Vocabulary

A list of words and often phrases, abbreviations etc. usually arranged in alphabetical order and defined or otherwise identified as in a dictionary or glossary.

2.2.2.   WCO and the H.S.

The World Customs Organisation (WCO) has developed a number of standards and guidelines pertaining to the interchange of data in the area of goods and cargo declarations.

The WCO maintains the Harmonised System (HS) which provides a 6-digit classification system for goods and commodities, the HS is used for classifying goods covering over 5 000 descriptions of the products or groups of products most commonly produced and traded. The structure of this numeric system is such that it provides a legal and logical structure, which puts group's products or categories of products into headings, chapters and into sections.

It can be used by customs but is meant also for statistics, manufacturers, transport, import and export.

The structure is as follows:

XX

Heading

XXXX

Harmonised System

XXXX.XX

HS Code

For additional local use the code can be expanded as follows:

XXXX.XX.XX

Code for Combined Nomenclature

XXXX.XX.XX.XX

Statistics number

XXXX.XXXX.XXX

TARIC code

Moreover there are further local subdivisions of up to 21 positions to indicate e.g. the national tax code.

The Kyoto Convention of the WCO describes in detail the procedures and processes and the information elements for transit and import/export declarations.

2.3.   Definitions

The following definitions (2) are used for the purpose of these technical specifications.

A traffic organisation service is a service to prevent the development of dangerous vessel traffic situations by managing traffic movements and to provide for the safe and efficient movement of vessel traffic within the VTS area.

Agent means any person mandated or authorised to act for or to supply information on behalf of the operator of the vessel.

Asynchronous message means a message that can be delivered by the sender without explicitly having to wait for the processing of the message by the receiver. The receiver decides when to process the message.

Barge means a vessel that has no propulsion of its own.

Code means a character string used as an abbreviated means of a) recording or identifying information b) to represent or identify information using a specific symbolic form that can be recognised by a computer. [ISO TC154/SC1]

Competent authority means the authorities and organisations authorised by the governments to receive and pass on information reported pursuant to this standard.

Consignee means the party such as mentioned in the transport document by whom the goods, cargo or containers are to be received.

Consignor means the merchant by whom, in whose name or on whose behalf a contract of carriage of goods has been concluded with a carrier or any party by whom, in whose name or on whose behalf the goods are actually delivered to the consignee in relation to the contract of carriage (Synonyms: Shipper, Sender).

Dangerous goods means  (3) :

goods classified in the UNDG Code,

goods classified in the ADN/ADNR Code,

goods classified in the IMDG Code,

dangerous liquid substances listed in the IBC Code,

liquefied gases listed in the IGC Code,

The location should be recognised as such by a competent national body.

Logistics means the planning, execution and control of the movement and placement of people and/or goods and of the supporting activities related to such movement and placement within a system organised to achieve specific objectives.

Manifest means a document listing the specifications of goods including equipment loaded in a means of transport. A manifest often represents an accumulation of Bills of Lading for official and administrative purposes.

Segment (EDI) means a predefined and identified set of functionally related data elements values which are identified by their sequential positions within the set. A segment starts with a segment tag and ends with a segment terminator. It can be a service segment or a user data segment.

Segment code means a code which uniquely identifies each segment as specified in a segment directory. [ISO 9735]

Shipmaster means the person on-board of the ship being in command and having the authority to take all decisions pertaining to navigation and ship management. (Synonyms: captain, skipper, boat master).

Shipper see consignor.

Single window means a facility that allows parties involved in trade and transport to lodge standardised information with a single entry point to fulfil all regulatory requirements. If information is electronic then individual data elements should only be submitted once (4).

Tracking means the function of maintaining status information, including current location, of cargo, cargo items, consignments or equipment (containers either full or empty).

Transport notification means the announcement of an intended voyage of a ship to a competent authority.

UN/EDIFACT means the UN rules for Electronic Data Interchange for Administration, Commerce and Transport. They comprise a set of standards, directories and guidelines for the electronic interchange of structured data, and in particular that related to trade in goods or services between independent computerised information systems. Recommended within the framework of the UN, the rules are approved and published by the UN/ECE in the UN Trade Data Interchange Directory (UNTDID) and are maintained under agreed procedures.

Vessel (synonym: ship) means an inland waterway vessel or sea-going ship. In inland navigation, this term includes also small crafts, ferry boats and floating equipment.

Vessel support services are services given to the skipper by e.g. bunker stations and repair organisation.

Vessel traffic monitoring means providing information orally as well as electronically as well as giving directions in interaction with and response to vessels in a traffic flow to optimise the smooth (efficient) and safe transport.

Vessel traffic services (VTS) means a service implemented by a competent authority, designed to improve the safety and efficiency of vessel traffic and to protect the environment. The service should have the capability to interact with the traffic and to respond to traffic situations developing in the area.

VTS area means the delineated, formally declared service area of the VTS. A VTS area may be subdivided in sub-areas or sectors.

VTS services means an information service, but also others, such as a navigational assistance service, or a traffic organisation service, or both.

2.4.   Classifications and code descriptions

In order to minimise interpreting work to be done by the receivers of messages, classifications and code lists shall be used to the highest possible extent. Existing codes shall be used in order to avoid creating additional work on the assembling and maintenance of new code lists.

The following classifications shall be used in inland ship reporting:

1.

Vessel and convoy type (UN Recommendation 28)

2.

Official ship number (OFS)

3.

IMO ship identification number (IMO) is the Lloyds Register as published for every seagoing vessel number without the letters LR

4.

ERI ship identification number

5.

ENI European navigation identification (unique European vessel number)

6.

Harmonised commodity description and coding system (HS, goods)

7.

Combined Nomenclature (CN, goods)

8.

Standard goods classification for transport statistics (goods)

9.

UN dangerous goods number (UNDG)

10.

International maritime dangerous goods code (IMDG)

11.

ADN/ADNR

12.

UN code for country and nationality

13.

UN code for trade and transport locations (UNLOCODE)

14.

Fairway section code

15.

Terminal code

16.

Freight container size and type code

17.

Container identification code

18.

Package type code

19.

Handling instructions

20.

Purpose of call

21.

Nature of cargo

In the following, details and remarks on the application of these codes in inland navigation and user guidelines are given. The vessel and convoy type codes are depicted in various languages in the code tables. The combination of the elements of the above named codes 12 to 15 is defined in Chapter 2.7.

2.4.1.   Updating of codes and reference tables

The need to maintain uniform codes and references and the strong requirement to keep the various tables stable and uniform, requires stringent procedures and processes for the maintenance, publication and usage of the various codes.

To facilitate the maintenance of all codes and reference tables used in electronic reporting messages, the codes and references are divided into six categories.

Category A

International codes and references maintained by an official organisation and used in a singular fashion. New or change codes will be published by the international organisation which also indicates at which time the new codes shall be implemented. The implementation of changes to the tables is coordinated by this organisation however for the reporting under the electronic ship reporting specifications, the ERI Expert Group shall indicate as from when the codes are to be used in the messages. Examples are the UNDG (5) IMDG (6) ADN/ADNR/D (7) and the HS/TARIC (8) codes.

Category B

International codes and references maintained by an recognised international organisation such as ISO or UNECE; the publication of changes to the tables takes place at regular intervals as a result of user requirements, the changes are coordinated by the user communities. Examples are the UN/LOCODES (9), the type of means of transport, transport mode, country and currency codes, freight costs and charges.

Category C

Business related codes and references maintained by a private respectively public-private organisation such as EAN, Lloyds, Protect. Examples are IMO numbers, EAN address codes.

Category D

Regional codes and references maintained by a public organisation for usage in a certain area. Examples are fairway section codes, ECDIS references.

Category E

National codes and references maintained by a public, respectively public private partnership. Examples are NST/R.

Category F

Standard codes and references used in the reporting and which are part of the standard message and described in the message as such. Changes should be coordinated by the controlling bodies. Examples are qualifiers, syntax codes, identifiers, function codes.

The international codes and references mentioned under Category A are generally originating from the shipper of the goods. The codes are to be supplied obligatory in accordance with the respective legal requirements and rules and regulations to enable and facilitate control by the competent authorities and emergency measures.

For all the other categories a subset consisting of the codes and references used in electronic reporting and other messages for inland waterway transport is often maintained by the controlling agency. In this way the harmonised use and implementation of new and changed entrees to these code tables can be executed in a coordinated way.

The controlling agency of the various messages can be found under UNH data element 0051 or in the message implementation manuals themselves or in the respective code tables as mentioned underneath.

2.5.   Unique European vessel identification number

The unique European vessel identification number (ENI), in the following referred to as European vessel identification number is defined in Article 2.18 of Annex II to Directive 2006/87/EC.

Unless the craft possesses a European vessel identification number at the time when it needs a European vessel identification number to participate in river information services (RIS), it shall be assigned to that craft by the competent authority of the Member State in which the craft has been registered or has its home port.

As far as crafts from countries where an assignation of a European vessel identification number is not possible are concerned, the European vessel identification number shall be assigned by the competent authority of the Member State, where the vessel needs a European vessel identification number for the participation in RIS for the first time.

The competent authority shall issue a certificate, which documents the assignation of the European vessel identification number.

Only one single European vessel identification number can be assigned to one craft. The European vessel identification number is issued only once and remains unchanged throughout the whole lifetime of the craft.

The owner of a craft, or his representative, shall apply to the competent authority for assignment of the European vessel identification number. The owner or his representative shall also be responsible for having the European vessel identification number affixed to the craft.

Each Member State shall notify the Commission of the competent authorities responsible for assigning European vessel identification numbers. The Commission shall keep a register of those competent authorities and of competent authorities notified by third countries, and shall make the register available to the Member States. On request this register shall also be made available to competent authorities of third countries.

Each competent authority in accordance with the previous paragraph shall make all necessary arrangements in order to inform all other competent authorities listed in the register kept in accordance with the previous paragraph of each European vessel identification number it assigns as well as of data for the identification of the vessel set out in Appendix IV of Annex II of Directive 2006/87/EC.

These data may be made available to competent authorities of other Member States, Contracting States of the Mannheim Convention and, as far as an equivalent level of privacy is guaranteed, to third countries on the basis of administrative agreements in order to perform administrative measures for maintaining safety and ease of navigation.

1.   ERI NOTIFICATION MESSAGE

The ERI notification message (ERINOT) is a specific use of the UN/EDIFACT ‘International Forwarding and Transport Dangerous Goods Notification (IFTDGN)’ message as it has been developed within the PROTECT organisation. The ERINOT message is based on EDIFACT directory 98.B and Protect version 1.0.

The segment table of ERINOT message is depicted in chapter 1.1. The branching diagram of the ERINOT message is depicted in chapter 1.2.

To ensure the usage of the message also under special circumstances such as a convoy of ships, some extra qualifiers have been introduced for the RFF segments in the TDT group.
