No, waste transporters aren’t just staying in the left lane these days. The new Closed Substance Cycle Waste Management Act (KrWG) passed on February 2, 2012 doesn’t speed the trucks up, but rather puts data processing in waste management into the fast lane. Two years ago on April 1, 2010, the so-called electronic waste records procedure became mandatory. Since then, millions of documents have been electronically signed and sent back and forth across Germany. Since that is working so well, the update to the law made it possible for numerous other electronic documents and procedures to go forward, but in a unified system.
BGHM, which originated from a merger, has modernized its IT landscape on a step-by-step basis. The result is a powerful, standardized system architecture based on the Microsoft product family and a modern composite desktop application for the core tasks of an accident insurance institution for the industrial sector. Since the plan originated about ten years ago, Consist has overseen and supported the institution for statutory accident insurance and prevention as well as VITA, their centralized IT department, on this path.
As of November, 2012, procedures for communication in and with residential registration offices will be required to be able to receive, send, and process messages with diacritical marks. Shortly, systems that use this data will be faced with the same challenge. In particular when using Adabas/Natural, Cobol, and PL1, this task is often underestimated. Consist recommends that you act early and can support you in your transition to the extended Unicode character set.
Before every big event with a press presence, the accreditation of journalists is prescribed. This process regulates the approval of each media representatives based on evidence that he or she is actually a journalist. There are strict conditions and security guidelines that must be followed. Consist has redeveloped the software for this accreditation system.
Relatively unnoticed by the media, a wave of mergers has taken place in the area of statutory accident insurers. Triggered in 2008 by the Law on the Modernization of Statutory Accident Insurance (UVMG), the number of statutory accident insurance and prevention institutions in summary (Berufsgenossenschaften – BG) will fall from its original level of 23 to only nine in the future. The institution for statutory accident insurance and prevention in the construction industry (BG Bau) is taking a leading role in this process, not only from an organizational standpoint but also technologically.
Electronic processes are increasingly relieving the burden on governmental agencies and enterprises alike. This is particularly true when these processes are continuous between all participants. The introduction of the electronic records procedure in waste management makes this quite clear. Consist ITU Environmental Software, or Consist ITU for short, is a key participant in the development of this exemplary continuous solution, since they are developing software for the government agencies, for companies involved in waste management, and also working with IBM to create the Central Waste Coordination Office – ZKS-Abfall.
