The next stage of EMCS (Excise Movement and Control System) enters into force on 1 October 2012 when the new EMCS Version 2.0 becomes a requirement for all companies sending or receiving duty-suspended excisable goods. OMV Deutschland GmbH is already working with the new version of the electronic movement and control system.
The company continues to rely on the EMCS functionality built into Implico’s OpenTAS terminal management and terminal automation system. The German customs authorities have in fact certified OpenTAS for EMCS 2.0 twice, both in Version 4.6 and in Version 5.0.
The EMCS electronic movement and control procedure has been mandatory since January 2011 for all cross-border shipments of excisable goods under suspension of excise duty within the EU.
