Trading Partner Agreement

Data exchanges on the Exchange Network are governed by trading partner agreements (TPAs), which specify the data to be exchanged as well as the format, frequency, and other related issues. Trading Partner Agreements (TPAs) are formal agreements that detail the what, how, and when of data exchanges between trading partners. The NeCODP created a simple TPA that describes the data being exchanged and the basic business rules of the exchange. New partners joining the project will need to sign a TPA to participate.
