If I want to use the 安博电竞app XML standards, what documents should I download?
The 安博电竞app Business Message Standard (BMS) packets are posted on the
安博电竞app global website
. Each BMS packet contains a set of documents per business message. Users need to download all of those documents to implement a given message. These documents include:
- a PDF file explaining what a BMS is and what it contains.
- specification of one or more business messages. Users must refer to this document when implementing the 安博电竞app XML standards, since the XML schemas do not contain all the necessary definitions, due to the syntax limitations (e.g. dependencies).
folder , with the following content:
Instance file folder
- contains at least one (out of many possible) sample XML file of the message.
HTML Sample folder
- contains the HTML representation of the sample XML file from the Instance File folder.
What are the benefits of EDI?
EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) provides trading partners with an efficient tool for the automatic transmission of business data from one computer application directly to another. Companies do not need to worry about different incompatible computer systems. Through the use of EDI message standards like 安博电竞app EANCOM or 安博电竞app XML, data may be communicated quickly, efficiently and accurately, irrespective of the users' internal hardware and software types.
The successful implementation of EDI provides major benefits for all the trading partners involved:
- significantly reducing the volume of paper to be handled and re-keyed, results in immediate savings in administrative and personnel costs. Staff can be redeployed to other more value added functions within the organisation.
- large volumes of commercial data can be communicated from one computer to another in a matter of minutes, enabling faster response and greater customer satisfaction.
- EDI eliminates the inevitable errors resulting from manual data input.
Better logistics management and increased productivity
- EDI helps companies to better manage and control production, purchases and deliveries. EDI is a key component of the just in time manufacturing and quick response customer supplier links, resulting in significant reductions in inventory levels, out-of-stock items and returns of goods.
What are the components necessary to introduce EDI?
EDI consists of 3 main components:
are determined by the business partners.
with two fundamental functions: it must generate outgoing information in a standardised format and interpret incoming information. Many software tools provide much more functionality. The cost of translation software varies dramatically depending on the platform and the functionality required. This cost can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars.
Electronic mailbox services
(e.g. VAN) is of the user company's choice. However, the use of a specific VAN service may be strongly suggested, due to the relationship established between the business partner and a specific VAN. It could be a benefit as in this case, some VANs provide discount prices.
What is 安博电竞app EANCOM?
is one of the
standards, a subset of the UN/EDIFACT standard.
安博电竞app EANCOM as a subset of UN/EDIFACT provides the collection of only those message elements which are needed by the business application and required by the syntax (mandatory elements). Omitted are optional elements covering business requirements not relevant for 安博电竞app users.
安博电竞app EANCOM incorporates the 安博电竞app standards of physical identification of trade items, logistics units and the Global Location Numbers identifying the trading partners into the electronic messages. 安博电竞app EANCOM allows integrating the physical flow of goods with related information sent by electronic means.
The implementation aspects of 安博电竞app EANCOM are explained in the
安博电竞app EANCOM User Guide
, which provides:
A set of messages used in 安博电竞app context selected from all the UN/EDIFACT messages
Detailed usage notes in simple language
Strict rules for usage of GTIN, SSCC, GLN
Only codes relevant for 安博电竞app users
More precise definitions of data and codes required for effective EDI

What is 安博电竞app EDI?
安博电竞app EDI provides global standards for electronic business messaging that allow automatic electronic transmission of agreed business data between trading partners. This automation ensures that the exchange is done in rapid, efficient and accurate manner.
In the 安博电竞app System, 安博电竞app EDI is composed of 3 components: 安博电竞app EANCOM®, 安博电竞app XML and 安博电竞app UN/CEFACT XML.
What is 安博电竞app XML?
XML is a language designed for information exchange over the internet. 安博电竞app uses XML to create a set of standard messages for the 安博电竞app EDI (Electronic Data Interchange).
specifications provides a standardised and predictable structure for electronic business messages, enabling trading partners to communicate business data rapidly, efficiently and accurately - irrespective of their internal hardware or software.
安博电竞app XML does not replace
. Rather, it provides another technology standard to support the exchange of transactional data. Individual industries will dictate the use of either standard.
What is my EDI mailbox number and how do I get it?
Global Location Numbers (GLNs) are commonly used as EDI mailbox numbers with third party Value Added Network (VAN) providers.
As a member of 安博电竞app Australia you will be assigned a Global Location Number (GLN) for your membership. If you have a full membership you can create GLNs for use as EDI mailbox number.
If you need only a GLN you can obtain a GLN by
安博电竞app Australia as a GLN-only member.
If you're not a member of 安博电竞app Australia, please
Customer Support on 1300 BARCODE.
Can I re-use a GLN?
Currently, a GLN that has been previously used and has become obsolete must not be reused for another location until at least 48 months have elapsed, except for locations used in the healthcare supply chain, where issuers of GLNs must ensure that GLNs shall never be reused, e.g. locations where treatment of patients take place etc.
From July 2022 onwards GLN Non-reuse will be applicable to ALL industries. An alert/notification (as per below) will be included in the next version of the General Specification in January 2022, giving all stakeholders time to update their systems and processes.
Important: The standard for GLN reuse will be changed on 1 July 2022. On that date, a GLN allocated to a party and/or location SHALL NOT be reallocated to another party and/or location. It is recommended that GLN reuse cease in advance of 1 July 2022 as soon as companies can transition their practices. If reuse is not currently occurring, it SHOULD Page 5 of 7 October 2021 NOT be started.
The only exceptions to the GLN non-reuse rules will include:
If the GLN was never published in an externally accessible manner (e.g., to a registry or directly to a trading partner), it may be reused immediately.
Parties and/or locations that have been withdrawn and are reintroduced may use the original GLN if they are reintroduced without any modifications or changes that require a new GLN as specified by the 安博电竞app GLN Allocation Rules Standard.
What is the fee for a GLN?
When you join 安博电竞app Australia to obtain barcode numbers, you are allocated a GLN as part of your membership. It doesn't incur an additional cost. Depending on your membership type
can be obtained.
What is Web EDI?
The Web EDI involves the exchange of electronic documents via an internet-enabled Web EDI platform. It helps the big companies to integrate their small business partners in the EDI.
The business messages are made accessible for the small users usually as the internet-based HTML forms. The forms are filled-in by the users and the message is then transmitted (in XML format) to the translation application. The software converts it into the relevant EDI standard, e.g.
and transfers to the big user company. The traditional EDI message sent by the large user company is transformed into the HTML form and sent to the Web EDI user.
This way, the user capable of investing in the full EDI infrastructure, can exchange business data with its small customers and suppliers.
