EMCS Solution for National Customs / Tax Authority
EMCS (Excise Movement Control System) is a computerised system for monitoring movements of goods transported under suspension of excise duty within the EU following the decision 1152/2003/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 June 2003.
Since 1st April 2010, it replaces the paper document that used to accompany such movements (the Administrative Accompanying Document or AAD) with electronic messages from the consignor to the consignee via National Authorities.
Simplification of procedures.
Secure movement of goods (Traders’ data will be checked before the goods are dispatched).
Quicker release of the guarantee for traders (Evidence that the goods arrived at their destination will come faster in a safer way).
Effective monitoring with real time information and checks during movements.
This amounts to a major development for those who trade in alcohol and alcoholic beverages, tobacco or energy products.
Our EMCS solution for National Authorities
The full EMCS functionality is implemented through the combined usage of two major SOA components of the Vivansa lxr. portfolio, namely:
lxr.NEA, which implements the National Excise Application core functionality;
lxr.SEED, which implements the System of Exchange of Excise Data.
Optionally, a third component called lxr.ARCfallback, which implements eAD Registration Code (ARC) fallback services, can be added to the core functionality.
lxr.PORTAL, which provides Traders with “to customise” connectivity services to various Customs & Excise systems through both manual (Web-based) interfaces and automatic (B2G) interfaces;
lxr.CCN, the multi-application software connector for the CCN Network, which establishes channels with other National Authorities and the European Commission.
lxr.NEA and lxr.SEED offer autonomous services that can be purchased and evolved separately. Once deployed in the National Authority environment, they can be combined with the capabilities of legacy systems (no “silo”).
EC Compliant. The Vivansa EMCS solution complies with the latest versions of the EC specifications (FESS, FRS, TESS, SESS and DDNEA) and continuously benefits from the internationally renowned expertise of Vivansa experts in the field of electronic Customs & Taxations.
Flexible and Scalable. Thanks to its “built to change” SOA architecture, the Vivansa EMCS solution is able to flexibly incorporate new functionality as soon as business demand evolves and to adapt to national specific requirements.
Open and Portable. The Vivansa EMCS solution licensing scheme allows access / modification of its source code. It is delivered as a Virtual Appliance so as to ease its deployment into the national environment and to facilitate the maintenance of the installed components.
