  1. Definition of EDI

  2. ANSI_ASC_X12


There are four major sets of EDI standards:

  1. The UN-recommended UN/EDIFACT is the only international standard and is predominant outside of North America.
  2. The US standard ANSI ASC X12 (X12) is predominant in North America.
  3. The TRADACOMS standard developed by the ANA (Article Numbering Association) is predominant in the UK retail industry.
  4. The ODETTE standard used within the European automotive industry


Also known as Message Implementation Guidelines'.


Transission rfc

As more trading partners use the Internet for transmission, standards have emerged. In 2002, the IETF published RFC 3335, offering a standardized, secure method of transferring EDI data via e-mail. On July 12th, 2005, an IETF working group ratified RFC4130 for MIME-based HTTP EDIINT (aka. AS2) transfers, and is preparing similar documents for FTP transfers (aka. AS3). While some EDI transmission has moved to these newer protocols the providers of the value-added networks remain active.
