The Eurasian Intergovernmental Council has approved the Concept for Developing the Electronic Document Flow at the EAEU States' sea checkpoints.

The document defines goals, objectives, stages and main directions for developing the electronic document flow at sea checkpoints of the Eurasian "five" countries. It includes an action plan for developing the electronic document flow at the Member States’ sea checkpoints during the first stage for 2021-2022.

Information interaction at sea checkpoints organized within seaports is an important element of the national "single window" mechanism of the Member State on whose territory the seaports are located.

Developing the electronic document flow at sea checkpoints will enable to stop using paper documents, switch to data exchange, speed up and simplify the processes of transporting cargo, passengers and their luggage. All this will contribute to improving the quality of transport services and services at the seaport.

In the Union, the Russian Federation with the longest coastline in the world has access to international waters. Along with that, Russia and Kazakhstan are located on the coast of the Caspian Sea. The largest share of bulk cargo, including oil, petroleum products, ore, coal and grain which cargo owners, along with the Russian entrepreneurs, are entrepreneurs from the Republic of Belarus, the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Kyrgyz Republic, is transported by the EAEU countries’ railways towards seaports.​
