TRADACOMS stands for Trading Data Communications Standard. It is an international EDI standard developed by GS1 UK and is particularly popular in UK domestic trade. Like all EDI standards, the TRADACOMS EDI standard contains agreed message formats that enable the exchange of documents between countries, regions and industries. The TRADACOMS standard is made up of a hierarchy of 26 messages and offers numerous syntax rules for structuring data, plus an interactive data exchange protocol (I-EDI). Like EDIFACT, each message is also given a six letter reference (e.g. ORDERS).
