The processing and exchange of the One Maritime Data Standard take place through the 2BA data platform. This data platform offers an automated exchange of product data and related trade data between subcontractors, manufacturers, suppliers, shipyards and shipping companies.
2BA offers Dutch and European technical installation standards and has expanded to include specific fields that are essential to the maritime sector, such as Safety Data Sheets, specific export and import data and other customs information in recent years.
2BA is owned by industry associations from technical engineering sector. It manages the impartial data service for the controlled and automated exchange of electronic goods data between supplier and buyer based on ETIM standards.
Product and trade information from the manufacturer, importer or agent is entered into the database in a controlled manner and linked to data from the wholesaler. BMEcat and DICO (previously SALES005) are used for uniform data exchange.
In the platform, the product and trade data within the maritime chain are updated through periodical downloads into ERP software and/or calculation software.
A growing number of software suppliers have incorporated the link developed by 2BA, which allows users to search the 2BA data platform online and immediately transfer selected data into their own software.
Thanks to the filtering option for ETIM-product classes and/or specifications they can quickly find the right product.
