NENA received final approval from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) on January 3, 2017, for an American National Standard (ANS) that identifies standard specifications for the exchange of emergency data.


 The Emergency Incident Data Document (EIDD) provides a standardized, industry-neutral National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) conformant (XML-based) specifications for exchanging emergency incident information to agencies and regions that implement NG9-1-1 and IP-based emergency communications systems. Emergency incident information exchanges supported by the EIDD include exchanges between disparate manufacturers’ systems located within one or more public safety agencies and with other incident stakeholders.
