Réunion extérieure

Réservé aux Experts désignés par le GTF

Dear Team 1 Data Members,

We would hereby like to invite you to the meeting of the DTLF SG 1 Team 1 on 23 September, 09h00-17h00 with a 1-hour break at around 13h, in MS Teams environment.

The aim of the meeting is to analyse the feedback provided to the eFTI Data Requirements v0.2.

We invite you to take part of the DTLF SG1 Team 1 Data meeting on 23 September. You will receive the calendar invitation in a separate email.


The aim of the meeting is to analyse the feedback provided to the eFTI Data Requirements v0.2. You are still invited to provide feedback or revise what you have already shared in light of our last Friday’s discussion. As agreed at the meeting, the deadline for submitting your feedback is 16 September COB. The document with consolidated feedback will be shared with you the latest on 22 September.


Please take note that the meeting is planned as a whole day meeting from 09h00 to 17h00 with a 1-hour break at around 13h.


Below you can find the key takeaways for follow-up actions from Friday’s meeting discussing the review of eFTI-DR v0.2 and Dangerous Goods specific questions and relevant clarifications. Attached to this email you can find the slides that were presented today clarifying the working statuses of eFTI data elements and the reasoning behind introducing new data elements.


Key takeaways for follow-up actions and relevant clarifications:

eFTI Data Requirements

  • Several participants requested that it would be useful to have an extra column in the eFTI Data Requirements table providing a link between new data elements and data requirements that these data elements express, e.g. in Cabotage Regulation the address of the haulier as the data requirement, and the data elements such as city name, street name, etc. required to express the requirement.
  • Clarification: eFTI-DR working model includes currently more data than explicitly required. This is for the purpose that if additional data should be one moment needed, it would be easier to locate this data if it already exists, rather than inventing new elements and mapping them.
  • On the Combined Transport Directive, while Commission is working on the revision, in eFTI will be implemented the version that is currently in force. If needed, this will be amended when the revision of the law comes into force.  
  • Work ahead:
    • On 23 September, we will go through the feedback provided to the eFTI-DR.
    • In October, work will start on names and definitions, which will allow to do map them also to EMSWe, including DG information, ICAO air CSD and ICAO air DGD.


Dangerous Goods

  • As the next step we continue the mapping of relevant eDGTI data elements from the eDGTI library to eFTI DR model’s common data set and its structure.
  • This would be done in a format of flat list and would initially only include the attributes.
    • Expressing empty classes will be discussed separately.
  • A solution would need to be found to identify the definitions and information requirements. Generally, the definitions are in the ADR/RID/ADN, either under the definitions or somewhere in the text, but there are also some good-to-have elements that do not have definitions. The Dangerous Goods experts could provide input on this, but definitions could be found also from relevant Maritime and Air standards.  
  • Regarding an option to create under Dangerous Goods subset 3 sub-subsets for different modes, further information would have to be provided what would be the added value of this because the logic of the ADR/RID/ADN is that they would be as common as possible and that there are only a few parts that are different.
  • Work ahead:
    • Michael Dill will prepare a spreadsheet for the mapping and definitions.
    • DG experts will coordinate how to approach the definitions with the leading experts in WP.15.
    • Next meeting to continue work could take place after 26 September.



Kind regards,
