TBG1 Supply Chain
This specification provides the definition of the Contractual conditions message (CNTCND) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.
1.1 Functional definition
A message sent by a customer to a supplier and other interested parties providing the contractual conditions of a previously negotiated contract in order to enable the automatic processing of invoices for orders which have been made against the contract or for the completion of identified stages within the contract.
1.2 Field of application
The Contractual conditions 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.
A Contractual conditions message is sent by a customer to a supplier and other interested parties in order to inform them of the contractual conditions which will be used in the validation of orders and in the verification of invoices prior to payment.
This message is typically used in the case where a general contract has been established between the customer and the supplier against which goods will be ordered over a period of time on an order by order basis. The contract will have been previously negotiated and accepted. This message only contains the information that can be used in automatically approving the issuance of an order or the correctness of an invoice. It is not intended to contain the totality of the contractual information.
