January 25, 2010: Company announcement
The eANV solution Modawi has supported CHEMPARK with electronic recordkeeping for twelve months. More than 40,000 waste disposal transactions were handled in 2009. CURRENTA, the manager and operator of CHEMPARK, implemented the electronic waste record management procedure much earlier than legally required. Modawi particularly stands out as an eANV solution due to its excellent integration capabilities in portal solutions.
Hamburg – For CURRENTA, January 1, 2010 means a full year of success with the electronic waste records procedure (eANV) in the disposal of chemically contaminated hazardous waste using the eANV solution Modawi by Consist ITU. "Due to its complexity in terms of document types and numbers, we see the use of Modawi in the CHEMPARK as a proof of concept that Modawi handled very successfully," reported Ute Müller, managing director of Consist ITU. As of now, 36,552 consignment notes have been electronically processed by CURRENTA.
"We are happy to have found a strong partner in the eANV area with Consist ITU and their mature solution Modawi," says Dr. Ingo Wittenberg, Head of the Waste Management Center of Excellence at Bayer Business Services, the international competence center of the Bayer Group for IT-based services. "We were able to integrate the Modawi software seamlessly into eVENTO®, our solution for the electronic records procedure. It handles the management of legally compliant electronic messages and documents for recordkeeping, register keeping, and communication with authorities and other participants in the waste management process."
Early eANV start saved CHEMPARK significant paperwork
Companies are legally required to begin using the electronic records procedure as of April 1, 2010. But for CURRENTA, organizing the end-to-end disposal of all waste produced in the CHEMPARK, it made sense to start using the electronic variant as early as January 1, 2009. Some CURRENTA customers had been free of all recordkeeping obligations until the end of 2008. After expiration of this special status, disposal should still be easy to handle – previously it had always been a simple matter of clicking the mouse in the AMIS® waste management system developed and operated by Bayer Business Services, which used a simple internal consignment note. But to create an official consignment note in six paper copies for each and every legally regulated waste disposal transaction was considered too costly. CURRENTA thus decided to implement the eANV early.
To do this, Bayer Business Services adapted the AMIS® waste management system to the new legal regulations, developing the eVENTO® system for the electronic records procedure. Data is automatically forwarded from AMIS® into the eVENTO® system, then made available for all entities involved – waste producers, transporters, disposal companies, and monitoring authorities. Based on Modawi, the system manages the certificates, consignment notes, and the register, and supports qualified electronic signatures. Customer can use an Internet portal that integrates AMIS® and eVENTO® functions to access the functionality relevant to their needs. This portal solution is now also available for customers outside the group.
