TOOP Pilots


General Business Mobility

The first TOOP pilot area – Cross-border e-Services for Business Mobility – is composed of different usage scenarios that are of interest to the participating states, for example participation in public procurement procedures across borders



The main goal of the pilot is to simplify the public procurement process and make it easier for businesses to participate in eTendering procedures at both national and cross-border level.


Online Ship and Crew Certificates

The third TOOP pilot area – Online Ship and Crew Certificates – addresses the need for simplification in the area of ship and crew certificates, which are currently issued and maintained in paper format and stored by national Maritime Administrations



TOOP success stories


The implementation of the ‘once-only’ principle across borders will highly contribute to the realisation of the Single Digital Market in Europe.


Taking part in the TOOP project is perceived as a great experience to prepare us for the implementation of the Single Digital Gateway Regulation.


One of our key goals in TOOP is to create conditions needed for establishing trust within the business sector.



Linking the Norwegian once-only landscape to an European once-only infrastructure - that is the main driving force for us to participate in TOOP.
