What does the RUNT do?

  • Assigns ranks for sellable goods.
  • Controls and monitors of collection of sellable goods.
  • Uploads information provided by all the actors involved in the RUNT.
  • Integrates other Actors (Automotive Teaching Centers, CEA, Automotive Diagnostic Centers, CDA), etc.)
  • Issues information certificates


  • Response times: f the information used for handling processes (online and in real time) is managed but RUNT, citizens will perceive that their procedures are resolved faster.
  • Information reliability: RUNT is the only storage place for this data and it always validates information against its source. This guarantees that its information is unique and true.
  • Information security regarding a vehicle or a driver's license: The RUNT security system is based on fingerprint identification of owners and drivers. In addition, all transit agency or Ministry of Transport staff-entering RUNT must use his or her fingerprint, code and password, and must digitally sign any update or modification.
