X12M Supply Chain Subcommittee

This standard provides the format and establishes the data contents of the Trading Partner Profile Transaction Set within the context of an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) environment. This transaction set can be used to request, change, verify or transmit business profile information to or from a trading partner. This information can be used by the receiver to facilitate the processing of the sender's business transactions. The transaction set may be used to convey government survey information, business classification, general survey information, summary supplier ratings, changes in the EDI environment information, tax information, entity relationships, and general business profile information to update automated information databases between trading partners.
