EDI Guidelines For 180 Return Merchandise Authorization/Notification & 812 Credit/Debit Adjustment

Published 2023

Developed by HDA’s eCommerce Task Force, these electronic data interchange (EDI) guidelines explain the format and application of the Accredited Standards Committee (ASC) X12 standards as they pertain to the Return Merchandise Authorization and Notification and Credit/Debit Adjustment transaction sets for use in healthcare.

  • The 180 EDI transaction set provides guidance on customary business and industry practices relative to the return of the merchandise to a vendor.
  • The 812 EDI transaction set can be used for any debit or credit memo between a distributor and manufacturer including rebates, bill-back credits, returns, overcharges (including shortage claims), undercharges, handling fees and damaged goods.
The guidelines were revised to address Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) requirements. Business case examples are also included in each transaction set.
