AS4 is interesting for industries or markets that use a service-oriented architecture for B2B messaging. AS4 is mainly used in the retail, utilities & energy and healthcare sectors. For example, Cisco was one of the first companies to use AS4.
According to the EU regulation 2015/703 of 30.04.2015, the AS4 message protocol will already be binding in the supply sector, e.g. the European Gas Network Operator (ENTSOG), in countries such as Germany, Sweden, Denmark and Italy from the end of 2017 / beginning of 218. In the above-mentioned regulation, the network code was laid down with rules for interoperability and data exchange.
