Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Library

The Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Library contains all the documents and definitions approved by ENTSO-E for the harmonisation and implementation of standardised electronic data interchanges.

Common Information Model Expert Group is responsible for the maintenance of all implementation guides concerning information interchange produced by ENTSO-E.

For any maintenance request on ENTSO-E documents, please use the maintenance request form and send it to cim@entsoe.eu

The implementation guides contained in this section are one of the building blocks for using UML-based (Unified Modelling Language) techniques in defining processes and electronic documents for interchange between actors in the electrical industry in Europe.

The guides are generally targeted towards business-to-business application interfaces using the full power of the acknowledgment process. However, it may be equally put into place in a more user-orientated fashion through a web-based service where the key elements of the acknowledgement process are implicit in the service itself.
