In conjunction with the E-cert BRS document, this document provides a standard framework for the exchange of information for traded agricultural products between government regulators involved in cross border trade, where export certification is required to facilitate the entry of product into a country.   

This document transforms the government to government (G2G) electronic certification business requirements elaborated in the associated BRS document into a technical requirement specification for the exchange of sanitary and phytosanitary export certification data. The model provides an XML based message structure and associated data components suitable for use by developers in the building of eCert compatible systems.
