The latest version of Riege Software’s transport management system Scope, is now connected to the Regulated Agent (RA) and Known Consignor (KC) database of European Union. Previously it was possible to store in Scope the RA and KC status, but this new feature adds online validation of these parties.
New regulated agents or known consignors can be looked up in the RAKC database while processing shipments or customs entries in Scope. The RA or KC number and date of registration are then included in the Scope database automatically.
The user can set a regular interval for Scope to automatically validate RA and KC addresses (e.g. every day at 02:00) and inform users if any changes to these addresses occur.
Scope uses a login provided by the Dutch Royal Military Police (KMAR) which is specific to each user or group of users. This enables the KMAR to show how many times a user has accessed the RAKC database.
Integrated control of established regulated agents and known consignors within the European Community is in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 300/2008 and its implementing regulations.
