The Wool Industry EDP User Group (WIEDPUG) is a technical forum for the development and implementation of data and document standards for electronic communication of wool industry data through the Industry EDI Networks.  It progresses its recommendations by consensus, relying upon the merit of proposals and the perceptible benefits flowing from essential standardisation.  Changes to data exchange standards are considered on referral from recognised industry organisations.

Wool Industry EDI Data Communications Handbook

The Wool Industry EDI Data Communications Handbook provides new users of electronic transmissions in the wool industry with a guide to setting up, sending, and receiving business data via this medium, including hardware, software and contractual requirements.  The handbook is a technical manual which defines the files, records and codes used in wool industry data communications.

Production of the Wool Industry Data Communications Handbook is the responsibility of the Australian Wool Exchange and is administered by the Wool Industry EDP Users Group (WIEDPUG).
