Implementation Guides

Interchange agreement

The Nordic Interchange Agreement is a part of the Ediel set of documents. The intention is that it should be used as a common agreement for interchange of Electronic data in the Nordic power market. The Interchange Agreement can be found in FUNK-24A.doc.

Ediel Message Handbook

To ensure that interchanging of information in the power industry is based on the same framework, an Ediel “Message Handbook” was made for more that 20 years ago. This Message handbook contains Implementation Guides for common used message types in the power industry. 

In addition a functional description, which contains common descriptions for the different Implementation Guides, was made. This includes relations between the different message types, use of codes and code lists. Special conditions between the countries, time zones, terms and notation, use of header and trailer segments and the use of the CONTRL message are documented. 

The Message Handbook is primarily written for persons who are going to implement UN/EDIFACT messages in applications and EDI-software vendors.
