    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Provides industry and government with a common client data interchange standard that eliminates the need for creative data variations.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    General This Standard sets out requirements for data elements for the interchange of client information. The data elements covered comprise party identification, person details, organization details, addressing, and electronic contact details. See Figure 1.This Standard focuses only on the interchange of Australian client information and any international client information is beyond the scope of this Standard. This Standard does not address data interchange syntax.This Standard applies to databases that require a standard definition of the format for datasets relating to the client information. Items such as person/organization details, addressing and contact details are given a data standard that can be utilized by databases.Interchange message designThis Standard does not provide guidance on the principles for interchange message design and how the different parts of the Standard may be assembled into an interchange format. The Standard does not focus on the design of how the data is structured together, or any other data modelling standards. It is focused primarily on how individual data elements are presented in a common format for interchange of that data.
