eBIS-XML 3.10

The latest BASDA eBIS-XML standard (version 3.10) provides support for key business processes covering trading documents (such as invoices and orders), utilities billing and sustainability data:

  • Trading documents: Purchase orders, order responses, invoices and credit notes. Includes document batching capabilities and specific extensions for activities, such as Hire invoices.
  • Green eBIS-XML: Delivers a unique format for the exchange of environmental information, carbon content and impact details for items supplied. This is particularly useful for companies required to measure and report on their carbon footprint.
  • Utilities XML: BASDA has worked with leading utility providers to create a standard that supports energy billing and allows units used to be embedded. This aids the customer’s analysis of usage especially for companies with multiple sites and meters across their business.
  • Expansion: BASDA has facilitated the ability to provide for specific information extensions within the standards. For example, for Timesheets, Contract Hire and sector specific data so we can ensure that all business sectors can be supported using the BASDA interoperability standards.

BASDA members can obtain a copy of these new standards from info@basda.org
