Transnational IWT barrier reporting tool
Electronic Reporting Tool for Administrative Barriers

Pro Danube International (PDI) created this website under its domain to provide a tool for the stakeholders of Danube navigation to report administrative barriers that they have experienced and to name positive experiences.

The transnational IWT barrier and good practise reporting tool is the first output of the DANTE project that is setting the background to collect inputs from the IWT stakeholders. This innovative, multi-language tool enables the state-of-the-art way of mapping the every-day barriers of the actors in IWT and result in a database that will work as basis for the analysis and recommendations.

The inputs will be analysed by PDI and the partners in the DANTE project, and further utilized to eliminate these barriers in order to ensure the smooth and predictable way of the logistic processes using the river Danube. The initiative is part of PDI´s campaign on administrative barriers and follows the PDI vision of “Same River – Same Rules”.
