Standard Business Document Header (SBDH)

This specification defines the Standard Business Document Header (SBDH) which enables integration of documents between internal applications, enterprise applications, and business-to-business infrastructure by providing a consistent interface between applications. The standard header can provide semantic information needed for the routing, processing and business domain context of documents, regardless of the data format of the document – XML , classic EDI or other format.
