EDIFACT Message and Segment Directory

EDIFACT and X12 are the most common and widely-used vocabularies of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). This website covers the EDIFACT vocabulary.

For an overview of all of the messages supported across all of the various versions, see EDIFACT Standards Available Across All Versions.

EDIFACT transmissions are broken up into pieces called messages, segments, and elements. The various encoded values are listed in code lists.

This page is a jumping-off point for exploring the definitions of these structures related to the EDIFACT standard. You can think of these as EDIFACT javadocs.
