INTRODUCTION This specification provides the definition of the Timetable static data update - interactive message (TSDUPD) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport. 1. SCOPE 1.1 Functional definition A TSDUPD message provides static data complementary to travel schedule information conveyed by a SKDUPD - schedule update interactive message, such as information about locations and parties. A travel service provider sends timetable static data to other service providers or agencies such as government departments, traffic authorities and timetable publishing. 1.2 Field of application The Timetable static data update - interactive message may be used for both national and international applications. It is based on universal practice related to administration, commerce and transport, and is not dependent on the type of business or industry. 1.3 Principles -The message is designed to transmit new or changed schedule information in order to update the recipient system. -The message can contain either a complete set of schedule information data or updates to a former delivery. -The message may also be used to formulate a request for re- transmission of the data in case of error. -The message may be sent spontaneously when the travel service provider has new information available, or as a response to a SKDREQ - schedule request interactive message. 2.
