Please take note, therefore, that in the event of a new Balance Group Contract, or changes to your 1:1 EDIFACT address in Appendix 2 of the Balance Group Contract, you simultaneously have to submit a valid SMIME certificate for encryption and signature.
For the exchange of public certificates, the coding applies:
- DER-codiert-binär X.509 (with the File-Extension: .cer) or
- Base-64-codiert X.509 (with the File-Extension: .cer)
In future, we will not be permitted to receive, process or send EDIFACT messages that do not comply with the rules.
