The (Cross-Industry) Acknowledgement process has been compiled using the UN/EDIFACT APERAK as a base, with contributions and submissions from: VDA, ODETTE, GS1, UN/CEFACT Japan Committee. The essence of the Acknowledgement process is validating the business document received, both technically and semantically (business logic). The process involves a couple of information exchanges in order to inform the sender that his business document has been received, accepted, rejected or changed in process status during its lifecycle. All business partners have an interest that any errors or process changes of life cycle status are identified and communicated, efficiently and unambiguously so that the necessary actions can be made.
