The IMO Compendium on Facilitation and Electronic Business

The IMO Compendium on Facilitation and Electronic Business (IMO Compendium) is a reference model which aims to harmonize the semantics and format for all information in the maritime domain relevant to the IMO.  The IMO data set and reference model ensures that IT systems from different stakeholders can exchange data with shared meaning, supports harmonization of MSWs, port call optimization and not least will facilitate the development of green and digital corridors.     

Collaboration with the World Customs Organization, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, the International Standards Organization and now with the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) ensures full alignment across the supply chain.  

Since July 2019, the IMO Expert Group on Data Harmonization (EGDH) set up by the Facilitation Committee, is responsible for the technical maintenance and extension of the IMO Compendium. 

The new version of the IMO Compendium approved by FAL 47 is available as HTML publication and in Excel versionIMO Compendium approved by FAL 47.xlsx
