National Database System

The Australian Experience


Runs on mainframe computer system which is being
phased out



Developed in ADABAS/NATURAL

which is a legacy programming environment


What system is in place now?

Limitations of current system


Fixes needed to cope with increasing numbers of
transactions


Does not use graphical user interface (mouse)


Manual manipulation of data for INCB Forms


Multiple opportunities for errors


Considerable time required to train new staff


Cannot run flexible enquiries or management
reports



Changes in standard technology



Increasing administrative

workloads



Stakeholder needs



Why do we need to change?

Anticipated benefits


reduced number of errors
-

better data


decrease in amount of manual keying
(duplication of effort)


less manual manipulation and checking of data
for inclusion in INCB reports


better service to clients


capacity for integrated systems with Customs
Service and States/Territories


improved communication


Changes required for internationally
controlled substances


Link standard licence and permit conditions to
particular substances or importers/exporters


For example:


Goods must not be stored at the importer’s address but
delivered directly to [address]


Goods on this permit are for use in laboratory analysis
only.


The importer must notify Australian Customs Service of
arrival time, flight number at least 12 hours prior to
arrival of the goods [pseudoephedrine raw material]



Changes required to internationally controlled
substances (cont.)


View address on authorisation screen


Flag exports which require corresponding imports
permits for Schedule III and IV psychotropic
substances


Make competent authority an optional field in
import screens


Permit authorities to choose if error messages can
be

over
-
ridden


What changes do we need for
substances not under international
control?


capacity to print different permit
types for different groups (eg anabolic
steroids)


substance master file to include
additional parameters which can be
turned off (eg need for estimates,
licences)

Where to next?


establish master files


migrate existing data


customise licences/permits/letters/ reports


customise data input screens, terminology,
error messages and help screens


setup security and access

and then…...


VALIDATE


IMPLEMENT


OPERATE
