Questions on data providers and XML file for tariffs



We are looking into GTS for maintenance of our tariff numbers. We would like to use the data from a data provider to keep the numbers up to date. Regarding this I have a few questions. I hope someone can help me out here.

- What dataproviders are "SAP-certified"?

- In what format is the data delivered. FI. the US uses a 10-digit code, while France uses a code between 11 and 13 digits. Others use another format again.Are all these codes included in one file or are country-specific files delivered?

- How automated is the process? Can a file be downloaded and immediately be uploaded in GTS or is manual work involved?

- Do the providers offer additional functionality like alerting on codes that are not valid anymore, reporting on changed duty rates etc?
