XML structures of eBIZ/TC Upstream documents (Draft)

Introduction to the XML document template

The structure of the XML documents is the very prescriptive part of the eBIZ/TC Upstream framework: using the eBIZ/TC Upstream documents, the prescriptions must be completely respected about structure of the documents, names and coding, optionality or mandatory use of elements, meaning of each element.
Otherwise the documents could be not validable with the XML Schema (that are the only way to check the formal compliance of the documents) or could generate misunderstandings about the meaning of the message on the side of your partners.
The allowable customisations are about the use or not of a document or about the elements of the document that are declared 'optional'; they can be used to simplify the documents (not all the elements are always necessary).

The (template of) eBIZ/TC Upstream documents of each release are on www.ebiz.enea.it or www.moda-ml.org and are represented by:

Document Traceability Despatching Advice
Description Traceability Despatching Advise of the goods sent upon any business transaction
Release date 28/05/2022
This guide aims to illustrate to fashion companies the standard XML format of the document type "TRACEABILITY DESPATCHING ADVISE", providing instructions for its use in the context of a TRACEABILITY SYSTEM involving Fashion Manufacturers, their customers, third parties and in case customs authorities, eBusiness and eCommerce platforms.
All the rules necessary for the construction and validation of the document are expressed through a specific XML schema, which is presented in detail in the paragraph "Implementation Guide".
The message is issued to record in the traceability system and anticipate to the destinationparty the information of the shipment of the product (it does not indicate the 'ready to send' condition, for this purpose use a normal despatch Advise); it may contain information such as transaction certificates relating to the goods shipped.
Each line of Traceability Despatch Advice must indicate the product with a unique code and can specify the Order line or other document to which it refers.
