Streamlined presentation of UN/CEFACT standards

General Standards

The "United Nations Code for Trade and Transport Locations" is commonly more known as "UN/LOCODE". Although managed and maintained by the UNECE, it is the product of a wide collaboration in the framework of the joint trade facilitation effort undertaken within the United Nations.


The United Nations rules for Elec­tronic Data Interchange for Administration, Commerce and Transport (UN/EDIFACT) comprise a set of internationally agreed standards, directo­ries, and guidelines for the electronic interchange of structured data, between independent computerized information systems.


The objective of this Buy-Ship-Pay Reference Data Model (BSP-RDM) BRS is to describe the requirements for a generic Reference Data Model (RDM), generalizing the concepts of the Multi-Modal Transport Reference Data Model (MMT-RDM) and the Supply Chain Reference Data Model (SCRDM), leading to the development,publishing and improving the maintenance of a Business Standard, which can be applied by country and regional administrations and industries.
