Start of OMDS

One Maritime Data Standard started with the aim to simplify the data landscape of the maritime sector: one unambiguous system for product and trade data exchange within the supply chain.

This initiative led to the unified One Maritime Data Standard, which is being implemented in an increasing number of cases within the maritime sector.

OMDS is making uniform recording and electronic exchange of product and trade data in the Dutch maritime sector a practical reality through the 2BA dataplatform.

2BA gathers and validates all product information - such as technical specifications - from manufacturers and related trade data from wholesalers from the technical installation sector and manufacturing industry in one central database. All parties exchange data with 2BA on a daily basis, so everybody can access the most up-to-date information at any moment.

Data fields within the 2BA database

2BA manages the central and neutral data pool for the controlled and digital exchange of product information between manufacturer, supplier and buyer on the basis of international ETIM standards

Especially for the maritime line of business, the product information in the 2BA data pool has been expanded. Think of country of origin, safety data sheets, specific import and export data and other customs-related information.

Implementation of OMDS

OMDS is continuing to be implemented within the sector, the number of participants is increasing and more and more data is being shared through the central database.

Expanding the digital information source and improving data efficiency leads to substantial advantages in the logistic chain.
