Database of main standards and parameters of the E waterway network

The Blue Book database provides navigational characteristics of E waterways, as set out in Table 1 of the second revised edition of the Inventory of Main Standards and Parameters of the E Waterway Network ("Blue Book"), published by UNECE in 2012. Data include present and target values for individual E waterway sections to be achieved through modernization of existing waterways or construction of new inland water links.

The pan-European E waterway network, administered by UNECE, is enshrined in the European Agreement on Main Inland Waterways of International Importance (AGN Agreement).

Data contained in the new Blue Book have been compiled and verified by the UNECE Transport Division in line with the instructions of UNECE Member States and the 17 Contracting Parties to the AGN Agreement: Austria, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Republic of Moldova, Romania, Russian Federation, Slovakia, Switzerland, Ukraine. Finland, France, Germany and Greece have only signed the AGN Agreement.

To display data you will have to select:
   1. One or more E waterways (search by country or by E number),
   2. One or more E waterway sections,
   3. One or more parameters or additional information.
