OFFLINE & ONLINE SINGLE FORM APPLICATION

The Single Form is actually supported by two different technologies:

 

  • The Single Form 2018 Offline

  • The Single Form 2018 Online


The APPEL application will no longer produce XML files that are compatible with PDF Single Form.

At this point the only way for creating, editing and submitting documents will be to use either new “Single Form 2018” in APPEL or its offline version;

WHO YOU CAN CONTACT IN CASE OF PROBLEMS

In case of technical problems in managing the offline Single Form offline application or APPEL, and you do not find any solution in the dedicated manuals (availalbe below) you may write to: ECHO-IS-SUPPORT@ec.europa.eu

THE SINGLE FORM 2018 - OFFLINE

The New Single Form 2018 has been launched to address primarily the problem with unsatisfactory performance of the PDF technology.
The new offline tool can be used for both new and ongoing actions.

REQUIREMENTS

To work comfortably with the new Single Form 2018 you will need:

 

A. The Internet connection and access to APPEL:

  • to obtain the project data and zipped Single Form;

  • to upload the project data to APPEL.

 

B. A computer with the following software installed:

  • a browser: Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer 11; In this respect, it is advisable to use primarily Chrome or Firefox because the support the “auto-save” feature, while Explorer doesn’t offer the best experience.

  • un-zipping software: 7-Zip, WinRar, WinZip etc. In this respect, please note that to make sure that the Single Form Ofline runs as expected, it is better to keep all the extracted files in the unzipped folder as it is.

 

N.B: Once you obtained the zipped Single Form with the project data, the Internet connection is no longer required; Microsoft Edge is currently not supported
