There are two types of X12 Technical Reports: Tutorials and Reference Models. Tutorials walk users through a specific standard and flush out the developer's intended use of that standard or transaction set. Reference Models illustrate the use of a group of transaction sets as they relate to each other and business applications.Guidelines offer detailed information about specific topics in using EDI.

Technical Reports and Guidelines are ASC X12-approved documents developed to promote greater consistency and coherency in information processing systems utilizing the X12 family of standards.

X12 Guidelines disseminate the technical and logical concepts reflected in the standards, or convey information on the "state-of-the-art" as it relates to electronic data interchange, X12 standards, or a particular aspect of the standards. Guidelines are not necessarily specific to a single X12 standard or version/release of a standard.

X12 Technical Reports are publications developed to provide guidance to standards users and software developers regarding usage of X12 standards or elements of the standard. They are intended to encourage uniform standards implementations. Technical Reports are classified as Types 1 and 2. A "Technical Report Type 1," tutorial, addresses one particular standard for general audiences expressing the developers' intended use of that standard or transaction set. A "Technical Report Type 2," reference model, illustrates the use of a group of transaction sets as they relate to each other or to one or more business applications. They may model business practice processes, applications, and business data flows, and may address other considerations intended to assist standards users to develop software systems to facilitate EDI transmissions.
