842 Nonconformance Report

Functional Group NC

X12M Supply Chain Subcommittee

This standard provides the format and establishes the data contents of the Nonconformance Report Transaction Set within the context of an Electronic Data Interchange environment. The purpose of this transaction set is to report products and processes that do not fulfill specifications or requirements. The Nonconformance Report Transaction Set provides the ability for the sender to report the nonconformance at the level of detail that is required. It also provides the ability to report the specific nonconformances of a component/part while identifying the assembly as the product that is in nonconformance. The Nonconformance Report Transaction Set may be used to report, initiate, or request actions related to the nonconformance being reported.
