Waste disposal information message
This specification provides the definition of the Waste disposal information message (WASDIS) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.
1.1. Functional Definition
A message to convey information on last inspection and on waste on board of a means of transport (e.g. vessel) and/or equipment related to a means of transport - and still to be disposed in the next place or port of call of the means of transport.
1.2. Field of Application
The Waste disposal information 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.
The message has been designed to enable control of pollution caused by a means of transport, e.g. in the maritime and port environment.
Business area: control of pollution by a means of transport (e.g. maritime pollution)
Sending function: authority (e.g. port), centralised database of authorities
Receiving function: authority (e.g. port) in the next place or port of call of the means of transport (e.g. vessel), search and rescue organisation.
See UNTDID, Part 4, Chapter 2.6 UN/ECE UNSM - General Introduction, Section 1.

0030 DTM, Date/time/period
A segment to provide the date and time of the message.
A group of segments to specify a reference applying to the whole message.
0050 RFF, Reference
A segment to specify a reference, e.g. reference to previous message.
0060 DTM, Date/time/period
A segment to indicate a date and time related to the reference.
A group of segments to give information about the inspection of the means of transport and the associated results.

0140 LOC, Place/location identification
A segment to indicate a location relating to the means of transport, such as: - place or port of departure - next place or port of call.
0150 RFF, Reference
A segment to specify a reference as an additional identification of the means of transport, e.g. radio call sign of a vessel.
0160 MEA, Measurements
A segment to specify a measurement of the means of transport, e.g. gross tonnage (of a vessel).
A group of segments to identify a party which could give further information on the conveyance of the means of transport.
0180 NAD, Name and address
