25 years of ‘TecDoc Standard’


2019 marks 25 years of TecAlliance’s ‘TecDoc Standard’.

The globally active data specialist introduced the data standard in 1994 in order to create a uniform data format for the collection, publication and distribution of high-quality spare part product information.

Today, the TecDoc Standard allows for the quick and precise identification of spare parts and vehicles, as well as optimised automated and digitised process solutions along the entire IAM supply chain. With the launch of version 3.0 of the TecDoc Catalogue – one of the world’s leading spare parts catalogues, which is naturally based on the data standard – TecAllianceis setting new benchmarks in spare part identification, to celebrate this 25-year success story.

“Data was and is our passion, so we shall consistently refine and maintain the TecDoc Standard, because it is an important building block in the standardisation and digitisation of the automotive aftermarket”, states Jürgen Buchert, CEO of the TecAlliance GmbH. “Due to this data standard, today a spare part can be identified and therefore sold, worldwide. Tomorrow, it will be the basis for the development and implementation of intelligent applications for the mobility concepts of the future.”

The TecDoc Catalogue is one of the world’s leading aftermarket catalogues, and covers more than 110,000 vehicle types, data for 6.6 million articles from more than 700 brands, 254 million links and 48 article groups.
