lxr.SEED implements the national part of the System of Exchange of Excise Data (SEED) in full conformity with EU specifications. lxr.SEED provides a database that includes a number of registers, i.e.:
> Register of Economic Operators
> Register of Authorisations
> Excise Offices List (EOL)
> Excise-related Reference Data (RD)
lxr.SEED also provides the related business processes implementing the collaboration that is required to maintain information supporting the EMCS core business processes including interactions with the European Commission central services.
lxr.SEED handles the automated synchronisation of updates sent to / disseminated by EC Central Services. Its embedded SOA mediation services hide the complexity of the interactions with CCN/CSI.
The “synchronization process” implements the maintenance and the dissemination of registration data (UC1.14 and UC1.15) as well as the maintenance and the dissemination of the Reference Data and the Excise Office List (UC1.04, UC1.05 and UC1.11).
For the authorizations, this process is based on the state of each record of the register following the synchronisation with the central services.
lxr.SEED is delivered as an autonomous module fully featured with:
> Database structure (compliant with the FSx-related SEED data model).
> Web Service based interface for programmatic update from existing national registers.
> Support of manual updates through national interface.
> Automated synchronisation of updates disseminated
by EC Central Services.
> Full support of temporary authorizations management (including accounting facilities), Reference Data (RD), Excise Office List (EOL), and List of Codes.
> Mediation services supporting the various CCN/CSI channels.
