This specification provides the definition of the Financial cancellation message (FINCAN) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.


1.1 Functional definition
A Financial Cancellation Message is sent by the Ordering Customer (or Payor or Agent on behalf of the Ordering Customer) or by a third party having authority on the Ordering Customer's payments to the Ordered Bank to request cancellation of a given financial message or transaction.

Throughout this document: - The term 'Original Message' refers to the message to be cancelled (in full or part thereof); the term 'originator' refers to the sender of the original message.

1.2 Field of application
The Financial cancellation 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
- This message contains one to many cancellation instructions.

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


3.1 Standard terms and definitions
See UNTDID, Part 4, Chapter 2.3 UN/ECE UNSM - General Introduction, Section 2.


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

The following semantic principles applying to the message are intended to facilitate the understanding of the message.

The Financial Cancellation message is structured in two levels: A and B.

Level A Segment Groups 1, 2, 3 and 6 contains general data related to the whole message.

Level B Segment Groups 4 and 5 contains data identifying the message or transaction to be cancelled.

Where a choice of code or text is given, only the code element should be used wherever possible.
