The Trans‐European Transport Network (TEN‐T) aims among others to ensure that European waterways are well integrated in the European transport system. The TEN‐T Guidelines stipulate that navigable waterways of European interest have to achieve "good navigation status (GNS)" by 2030, without providing a definition.

The European Commission asked a consortium of viadonaudepartement Mobiliteit en Openbare Werken VlaanderenSTC-NestraPlanco and INE to define the concept together with member states, river commissions and users before the end of 2017. The broader aim is to achieve seamless, reliable and predictable navigation on existing waterways in full respect of EU environmental law.

The activities in the framework of the Good Navigation Status study can be followed on our website.
