863 Report of Test Results

Functional Group RT

X12M Supply Chain Subcommittee

This X12 Transaction Set contains the format and establishes the data contents of the Report of Test Results Transaction Set (863) for use within the context of an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) environment. The transaction set can be used to transmit the results of tests performed to satisfy a specified product or process requirement. This includes, but is not limited to, test data such as inspection data, certification data, and statistical process control measurements.
