I'm not sure about this. The Utimaco Lawful Inspection Units LIMS (used by
big German email providers)  contain a "X1 admin interface" (or
"Management Server") which can used for administration of affected targets
and LEAs directly from the law enforcement agency like SORM.

See LIMS product description:

The "Management Server" of the LIMS unit can get all information for
provisioning a lawful interception by "H1 interface" directly from the law
enforcement agency.

I don't know, how X1 and H1 interfaces are used in real use cases, but it
ready to go.
