0. INTRODUCTION
This specification provides the definition of the Raw data reporting message (RDRMES) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.

1. SCOPE

1.1 Functional definition
A Raw data reporting message (RDRMES) is sent in response to predefined and identified questions.
Raw data are collected by numerous offices in the public and private sectors. Much of the data is predefined and repetitious. The data are often codified such that their description has been pre-set and meets the criteria of the collector.

1.2 Field of application
The Raw data reporting 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
The Raw data reporting message supports the transmission of multiple responses to one or more questionnaires, each uniquely identified.

Concepts-definitions:

Raw data: The respondent's answers to the collector's questionnaire.

Respondent: The organization for which raw data are provided.
Raw data may be sent by the responding organization or an agent acting on behalf of the responding organization.

Collector: The organization to which raw data are provided. Raw data may be received by the collecting organization or an agent acting on behalf of the collecting agency.

Questionnaire: A set of questions, with collector-assigned identifiers, addressed to a respondent.
