Joint API Data Dictionary

This is the API Data Dictionary (“Dictionary”), jointly owned by the IFSF (www.ifsf.org) and Conexxus, and shared in order to assist in the use of our international standards.  The Dictionary is open to the public and everybody is allowed to use them. For example, we expect many users will find the Dictionary helpful to understand fuel retailing and to define further innovative and collaborative APIs.
