ANSI X12 – The most commonly used EDI standard in America

What is ANSI X12?

In 1979, the American National Standards Institute chartered the Accredited Standards Committee X12 to develop uniform standards for the inter-industry electronic exchange of business transactions.

Today the standard is employed across different sectors and can be found anywhere in the world, but North America is the region where it is most commonly used.
