List of EDI X12 Business Transactions
(ANSI X12 Standards)

List of Codes to Use for Business Transactions (ANSI X12 Standards)

What is ANSI and Why Do You Need to Know?
As described previously, there is a uniform coding system used to communicate information through EDI. The coding system is called ANSI X12. The reason there are uniform coding standards is to make EDI efficient and to have the Government present a single face to industry to avoid confusion. The reason it is important to know about ANSI standards is because ANSI standards are the language of EDI.

Some Business Function Codes
The following is a list of ANSI X12 Version 3050 transaction sets (uniform standards available for business documents). Be sure to check with your Trading Partners to see what version they are using.


Items in bold are standards added in Version 003060
