Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the electronic interchange of business information using a standardized format that has been agreed upon by the industry standards council. While individual requirements can vary, these documents still maintain the standardized format and base requirements per type of document (purchase order, advanced ship notice, etc.) while allowing flexibility in the use of the format to meet specific business and partnership requirements.


DSW will now be requiring confirmation of Seller and Factory information on all POs of which DSW takes possession outside of the US to be in compliance with the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA). EDI has been amended to have a separate repeating N1 segment for the Seller and Factory information.
