In compliance with the Resolution of the Council of Ministers n. 12/2016, of March 16, and following the Protocols signed with the various authorities on December 21, APS extended the FUP - Single Port Invoice by vessel call to the Port of Faro and the Port of Portimão, with effects from 1 January 2017.

In order to establish the necessary conditions for this enlargement, the JUP - Port Single Window was set up in these two ports and, whenever applicable, the tariffs of the involved authorities were programmed to support the invoicing. Training activities were also carried out involving the users of the authorities in order to expedite the operation of the FUP in the ports of Algarve in beginning of the next year.

It should be noted that FUP is part of the Simplex 2016, developed under the responsibility of the Ministry of the Sea, and has been in operation in a national pilot project in the Port of Sines, since April 1, 2016, which resulted in the operating model that is now being applied to all ports in the continent
