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

1. SCOPE

1.1 Functional definition
A Settlement transaction reporting message is exchanged between participants in the Billing and Settlement Plan (BSP) to report transaction data for processing and account settlement purposes. BSP participants include airlines, agents, Computer Reservations Systems (CRS) and the BSP Centre.

1.2 Field of application
The Settlement transaction 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
A Billing and Settlement Plan (BSP) provides a central system and a global standard for reporting and settling accounts for transactions in the travel, tourism and leisure industry.

The Settlement transaction reporting message has two distinct functions:

(1) for a Computer Reservation System (CRS) to report agent transactions to the BSP Centre (BSPC);
(2) for the BSP Centre (BSPC) to report agent transactions and totals to BSP participating airlines.

In the CRS to the BSPC functional message, the data is transmitted on an agent transaction basis. In the BSPC to airline functional message, the data is transmitted on an airline agent basis.

Totals of all transactions for an airline by reporting period, agent and transaction type are only transmitted in the BSPC to airline functional message.
