The Accredited Standards Committee (ASC) X12 body meets to develop and maintain EDI standards that facilitate electronic interchange relating to business transactions such as order placement and processing, shipping and receiving information, invoicing, payment and cash application data, and data to and from entities involved in finance, insurance, transportation, supply chains and state and federal governments. Committee members jointly develop and promote EDI standards that streamline business transactions, using a common, uniform business language. With more than 275 transaction sets, ASC X12 standards can be used to electronically conduct nearly every facet of business-to-business operations.
