supply chain id
Supply Chain ID
  • A Supply Chain ID (SCID), coupled with an item reference number, is what gives a mailpiece uniqueness in Royal Mail’s network
  • In a 2D datamatrix it is a randomly generated 7 digit number
  • In a 4 state barcode it is a randomly generated 6 digit number
  • If both 2D and 4 state barcodes will be used against the same supply chain, then two SCIDs will be required
  • A SCID represents a unique combination of 4 Participant roles:
    • Mail Originator
    • Mail Producer
    • Carrier
    • Bill Payer
what is a participant
What is a Participant

A ‘Participant’ is an organisation involved in a posting in one or more of the following roles:

  • the organisation which provides the data (Mail Originator)
  • the organisation which produces the mail (normally the Mailing House)
  • the carrier (Royal Mail or a Network Access operator)
  • the organisation paying Royal Mail

To be a part of a Supply Chain an organisation must first be created as a Participant.

participant id
Participant ID
  • If a Participant fulfils the role of Bill Payer, the Participant ID must be linked to a Royal Mail account
  • Ideally only one Participant ID per Legal Entity
  • At least one User must be linked to each Participant ID
  • A maximum of 10 Users can be linked to one Participant ID
  • A User can only be linked to one Participant ID
  • A User must be registered on www.royalmail.com and the Mailmark™ Management System, with a company email address
general principles
General Principles
  • eManifests are generated against one SCID – mail linked to multiple SCIDs cannot be uploaded in the same eManifest
  • All Participants in a SCID can see reports generated against that SCID (unless the Bill Payer decides otherwise)
  • Each SCID will be linked to a Royal Mail account, via the Bill Payer role
  • Royal Mail will set up Participant IDs and SCIDs as customers request them. It will take 24 hours to create a new SCID
  • More Participant IDs will generally mean more SCIDs, creating complexity
suggestions to ease set up
Suggestions to ease set up
  • Use a generic email address to register on the Mailmark Management System – multiple users can than access using this email address
  • Use meaningful batch names to facilitate interrogation of reports and reduce the need for multiple eManifests and reports
  • Use just one Royal Mail OBA account for Mailmark mailings – this should be linked to the Participant ID
