The Access Point specification

An Access Point connects a business (and its natural systems) with the open and secure business-to-business (B2B) ecosystem. Access Points may provide a range of services (connectivity, message translation, data validation etc) to enable businesses to trade with buyers and suppliers in a consistent and seamless manner.

The Council’s Access Point specification is based on the OASIS AS4 Profile of ebMS 3.0 Version 1.0.
