Release and Sub-Release Schedule

The EDI Standard is published three times per year, the first publication is the annual release and the second and third publications are sub-releases.

Proposed modifications to the current EDI Standard proceed through a series of ballots and must be approved by impacted subcommittees, the Technical Assessment Subcommittee (TAS), and the Accredited Standards Committee stakeholders in order to be included in the next publication.

EDI Standard Enumeration

At roughly 5 to 7 year intervals, X12's EDI Standard is vetted through a process maintained by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). When ANSI approves, the EDI Standard's version number is incremented. Each publication of X12's EDI Standard is enumerated with a six-digit identifier indicating the version, release, and subrelease. The first three digits are the version which spans a number of calendar years. The fourth and fifth digits are the release. The ANSI approved version is identified with a release of 00, thereafter the release is incremented each calendar year. The sixth digit indicates whether the publication is an annual release (the digit is 0) or a sub-release (the digit is 1 or 2).

So, 007050 communicates that this version/release was published the 5th year after ANSI approved version 007, and that this is the annual release for that year.

The tables below depict the key dates for various steps in a normal modification/publication cycle. Note the milestone dates were adjusted at the end of 2017. Effective with version 007050, each annual release is published in January and contains all modifications approved in the previous calendar year.
