EDIs are standardised heritage electronic communication methods, used to exchange information and data in a structured format, streamlining transactions and reducing human intervention.
EDI messages will be supported as part of Velonetic’s (previously known as the London Market Joint Ventures) cutover to phase one digital services in July 2024.
Review the EDI release schedule for an update on specifications and expected changes to current EDI messages.
On 29 March 2023, Velonetic published the remaining seven EDI technical specifications marked for release. This concludes the activity on releasing EDI technical specifications as set out in the EDI release schedule.
All EDI technical specifications issued are final versions at the time of publication and vendors should use these to make any amendments required to be able to produce or consume the new EDI messages. Any change to EDI specifications will be notified as soon as possible.
This applies to standard EDI messages which are represented by all technical specifications referred to in the published release schedule. If vendors and/or users are using bespoke EDI messages, then the impact of any change will vary depending on how the message has been altered.
EDI technical specifications CLMLRC and CLMILC have been split into separate documents for brokers and carriers. This is shown in the table below.
LORS Appendix A has been added to the table below.
We strongly encourage you to refer to the Adoption Guide aimed specifically at operations, technology and change managers in market firms, setting out the activities that should be undertaken now to adopt phase one digital services at cutover in July 2024.
