Research study clearly indicates, there is a need for cooperation and information sharing between authorities and other Maritime related actors in security and safety issues on the European level. This study deals with European Common Information Sharing Environment (CISE) for the maritime domain. The purpose of this study was to enhance the development of authorities’ interaction in maritime surveillance. The European testbed for the maritime Common Information Sharing Environment in the 2020 perspective (EUCISE 2020) and Finnish National Common Information Sharing Environment for Maritime Surveillance (FiNCISE) are also surveyed within this study. The research was conducted as a qualitative study and the research method is principally descriptive. The material of this paper consists mainly of the documents of the FiNCISE and EUCISE2020 projects, unclassified material of the Border Guard, and attending to and observing project meetings. In this research, it was found out, that during the FIMAC cooperation, maritime activities have been developed. As a result, organizations have become streamlined by combining overlapping systems and, thus, each operator is able to focus on its own core competence. Significant economic benefits have been achieved in technical surveillance and communication systems’ constructing and maintenance of maritime traffic.
