This message also occurs in the following versions of this standard:

This specification provides the definition of the Reinsured objects list message (RELIST) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.


1.1. Functional definition

The RELIST provides partners involved in the placing of a reinsurance contract or endorsement structured details on individual items to be reinsured (partly for facultative risks); this generic item list can give details on any type of item, ranging from individual vessels, buildings, industrial sites, aircraft to exhibitions, fleets and groups of buildings or employees to name a few.

1.2. Field of application

The Reinsured objects list 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

As RELIST message is a supporting message to the RECORD message it has therefore the same main structure (header, contract identification, subdivisions). Per subdivision, a set of generic and specific segments have been grouped to report any relevant and structural information relating to individual risks, such as type of aircraft or vessel, category, year, built, relevant measurements, etc.

RELIST is one of a complimentary pair of messages for the placing of reinsurance business. The core business data for the contract is carried in the message RECORD whilst RELIST carries details of all the items covered under the terms of the contract.


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