RedPrairie is helping to ensure that its customers are fully prepared for the European Union wide Excise Movements Control System Union wide Excise Movements Control System (EMCS) regulations, with the release of version 2010.1 of its Duty Management solution. Businesses operating in the beer, wine and spirits industry will be affected by the EMCS, which is being introduced to control the movement of Excise goods between premises in member states, replacing the paper based system which has been in use since 1992.
The 2010.1 release update for Duty Management has the functionality to communicate with the EMCS system, to receive details of receipts expected from other EU states, and then discharge these once the stock has been received and checked against the expected quantities, showing any discrepancies. Other legislation changes in the current release include a new electronic declaration for movements between Customs Warehouses.
EMCS is being introduced in two stages in the UK. Since 1 April 2010, goods arriving from suppliers in member states that have already implemented the full system are being discharged electronically. From January 1st 2011, movements under bond to approved premises in the UK and other EU statues will need an electronic declaration to be made and accepted by the EMCS system. This will remove the need by the EMCS system. This will remove the need for paper copies to be signed and returned to the originating warehouses.
Continuous development and compliance is core to the RedPrairie roadmap. said Martin Hiscox, Vice Chairman of the Board, Managing Director and President International, of RedPrairie. Our team works with both the Customs authorities and our customers, to help ensure not just that the system is compliant, but that it also maintains warehouse and administrative efficiency.
