Purpose of DPIDs
In order to use any DDEX standard, a company needs to have taken out an implementation licence. The licence is free (as in free beer) and can be applied for on the DDEX website. In reply, typically within 2 working days, companies are issued with a DDEX Party ID (DPID). These IDs are issued in by the DDEX Secretariat in accordance with the DDEX Party ID Standard.
