0. INTRODUCTION

This specification provides the definition of the Price/sales catalogue message (PRICAT) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.


1. SCOPE


1.1. Functional definition

A message to enable the transmission of information regarding pricing and catalogue details for goods and services offered by a seller to a buyer. The message can also be sent by a buyer to a seller. This may be a response (acceptance or rejection) to a previously received price/sales catalogue message, or a notification of negotiated prices.


1.2. Field of application

The Price/sales catalogue message may be used for both national and international applications. It is based on universal practice related to administration, commerce and transport, and is not dependent on the type of business or industry.


1.3. Principles

  • A Price/Sales Catalogue Message Pricing-group or item may refer to either goods items or services.
  • The Price items are structured together according to industrial or commercial requirements.
  • The sales and delivery conditions within a Price/Sales Catalogue Message may refer to:

. all product/service items of the Price/Sales Catalogue Message, . a group of product/service items, . a single product/service item in the message, . within a single product/service item to different price basis occurrences.

  • A Price/Sales Catalogue Message may contain product and price information, as well as sales conditions.
  • The Price Item Line may identify the component parts of the price item.

When using the price/sales catalogue message to provide a response, the message sender may specify this information in one of two ways:

  • The total acceptance or rejection of a previous price/sales catalogue message;
  • The rejection of information either at a product group level or at an individual product level.

2. REFERENCES

See UNTDID, Part 4, Chapter 2.3 UN/ECE UNSM - General Introduction, Section 1.


3. TERMS AND DEFINITIONS


3.1. Standard terms and definitions

See UNTDID, Part 4, Chapter 2.3 UN/ECE UNSM - General Introduction, Section 2.


4. MESSAGE DEFINITION


4.1. Segment clarification

This section should be read in conjunction with the segment table which indicates mandatory, conditional and repeating requirements.

The following guidelines and principles apply to the whole message and are intended to facilitate the understanding and implementation of the message:

All specified dates/times should be in the format 'ccyymmdd'/'hhmm' unless all parties involved in the transaction agree that there is a functional requirement for an alternative format. Periods should be specified as whole numbers representing the required period as indicated in the date/time/period format (weeks, months, etc.).

Conditional data that is not required in the message should not be included.

Care must be taken that the segment qualifier in dependent segments do not conflict with the segment qualifier of the trigger segment of the group.

Free text information within the message should be avoided as this inhibits automatic processing.
