TRADACOMS is a pioneering implementation of EDI used primarily in the United Kingdom for retail and publishing data exchange. Its roots extend back to 1982 as an implementatioonebyonen of the UN/GTDI, and eventually led to EDIFACT – the EANCOM subset of which is actively used today.
Although officially TRADACOMS has ceased being developed, it has proven to be surprising resilient, and is in active use today. It was managed by the UK Article Numbering Association’s eCentre, and today falls under the purview of GS1 UK.
XML Pipeline Server supports both the 931 edition as well as the publishing industry’s BIC extensions. This grid shows exactly which transaction sets the TRADACOMS standard supports for each release.
