ETIM now also available in Australia and New Zealand

The technical information model ETIM is now also being introduced in Australia and New Zealand. The start of the implementation of the classification standard, which enables technical product data to be exchanged internationally between manufacturers, distributors and customers, was announced by the employer organization Ai Group at the end of July 2022. This simplifies business for Swiss exporters from the construction and MEM industries.

With ETIM, product data can be recorded in a classified manner and exchanged internationally in a standardized manner. The model is used in over 20 countries and is available in many languages. It enables customers to define exactly which technical attributes they need vis-à-vis potential suppliers.

ETIM will first of all be introduced for electrical technology, followed by sanitary installations, heating, ventilation and cooling technology, and finally other construction products.

The Australian and New Zealand industry association, Ai Group, expects the rollout to save costs and optimize supply chains for its members. International customers, in turn, will be able to supply them more easily.
