861 Inventory Receipt Advice

Purpose

 

The 861 Inventory Receipt Advice (IRA) is an electronic document sent by the purchaser and received by the seller that provides notification of the shipments which have been physically received in the purchaser's warehouse and is available for sale.  The standard is a confirmation of the receipt into inventory of the product contained in an existing EASI 856 ASN (Advanced Shipment Notice) file previously transmitted by the seller to the purchaser.  

 

The standard assists the seller in identifying what is truly in transit to the warehouse.  It can be used as a stand alone notification of product availability or in conjunction with the 870 Order Status standard for open order reconciliation purposes.
