Function documentationSimulating Business Transactions for Legal Control Locate this document in the navigation structure


You can simulate the assignment of license types for customs documents in legal control. As a result, you can quickly find out whether you require an additional license for your business transactions before the actual export or import. You can also simulate the check of document-related BOMs in legal control for exports.


  • Simulate business transaction for license determination

    You can check whether the system finds a license and assigns it to the document automatically in license determination.

  • Simulate business transaction with control-relevant BOM components for license determination

    If you use legal export control for document-related BOMs, you can simulate these business transactions as well. The system determines whether it can assign export licenses automatically to the items and subitems in a document.

The simulation results help you decide whether you need to request and/or enter additional import or export licenses.
