TC Engine’s software solution enables the jurisdiction and classification process to be standardized through the creation and use of decision trees. The decision trees institutionalize regulatory interpretations for commodities, product lines, etc. The decision trees provide a guided, automated experience that allows personnel to arrive at accurate jurisdiction and classification decisions by answering questions about the objects being classified.
The software’s capabilities enables a new approach to classification, as the tool allows jurisdiction and classification efforts to be distributed to personnel who are knowledgeable about the products, but not regulatory SMEs. In cases where a jurisdiction of classification cannot be easily reached, the decision trees enable escalation to a regulatory SME. This manage-by-exception approach allows limited SME resources to be used where they are needed most and greatly reduces the classification bottleneck.
To be effective, compliance software cannot exist on an island. That’s why we designed our software for integration. Through standardized interfaces, the tool can be connected to business systems to collect object information and return jurisdiction and classification attributes. Integration allows classification to be embedded in the business systems, enabling compliant data creation, storage and sharing.
