ETIM xChange is coming!

The ETIM International Team has worked on it for a few years now, but soon it will be available: ETIM xChange, a renewed data standard focusing on exchanging product data internationally in a standard format.

A European data standard

Globaal dataformaat ETIM xchange

The ETIM xChange data format is a step towards global data standardisation. The format is based on the European Master Data Guidelines (EMDG) and uses a number of existing standards, such as DICO, BMEcat and FAB-DIS.
The GS1 standard is used to identify items (GTIN) and locations (GLN).
The exchange format is JSON based and the ETIM xChange standard is fully controlled by ETIM International.
