SEMA Data Co-op Adds Legacy ACES Conversion as Member Benefit

The Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association’s (AAIA) Legacy electronic catalog standard was retired as of December 2012 and will no longer be supported or updated by AAIA. In order to meet the needs of today’s powerful business applications, the Legacy format has been replaced with the AAIA Catalog Enhanced Standard (ACES). Along with the vehicle configuration database, ACES provides a much more granular and rules-based standard. As the only industry-owned and operated data management service and centralized repository, the SEMA Data Co-op (SDC) is fully compliant with the industry ACES and Product Information Exchange Standard (PIES).
