Exis Technologies launches new web service for dangerous goods validation and data integration, 24 June 2015
Exis Technologies is pleased to announce the launch of a new web
service which allows companies to integrate the most current
dangerous goods regulations into computer-based systems.
Hazcheck Web Service is a web API based version of Hazcheck
Toolkits, a set of dangerous goods data packages and routines for
incorporation into cargo booking, handling, ERP and planning
systems (for example, SAP and Oracle EBS) that have been used
globally by container lines and ports over the past ten
years. It offers IMDG Code compliance and the additional
provisions and/or variations applicable when using the 49 CFR, ADR,
TDG and RID regulations with the IMDG Code.
The 'off the shelf' web solutions offered by Hazcheck Web
- Dangerous goods list database: check data
including UN numbers, proper shipping names, variants, classes,
sub-risks, packaging and flashpoints. Wildcard searches
- Segregation/stowage routines: calculate the
segregation requirements between containers/vehicles containing
incompatible dangerous goods or segregation within
CTUs. Identify if shipments are permitted on or under deck on
cargo, passenger ships, in tanks, limited and excepted
- Packaging routines: check that
commodities are shipped in compliant packages and do not exceed
maximum permitted weight or capacity.
- Restrictions and prohibitions: check against
customer specific, vessel or location restrictions as entered on a
case by case basis.
Hazcheck Web Service provides service oriented access to the
functionality of Hazcheck Toolkits using Microsoft Windows
Communication Foundation (WCF).
James Douglas, Director, Exis Technologies commented: "Hazcheck
Web Service allows companies to outsource expertise; Exis has been
supplying Hazcheck Toolkits for integration into existing systems
for over ten years. Detailed knowledge of global transport
regulations, which are very varied and complex, is not required by
in-house staff. Data can be integrated quickly and
efficiently, dramatically reducing system development time. As
Hazcheck Web Service is updated regularly in line with the changes
to the regulations, customers always have the most up to date
information to hand."
