The SANCRT message permits a commercial operator to apply to a national agency for the issue of a certificate, permit,authorization etc. in respect of products to be imported or exported.  It further permits the issuing authority to transmit to the applicant and to the exporting or importing country’s relevant national authority (e.g. Customs, Agriculture etc.), the details of the certificate, permit or authorization in respect of those products thus facilitating the import/export clearance of the consignment whilst ensuring that all certificate, permit, authorization requirements are met.
