XML Web Services Submission Process

EPA has developed an XML-based qualified product exchange (QPX) system for certification bodies (CBs) to submit information on products certified as ENERGY STAR via web services. These web services are based on XML submissions rather than Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. Unlike the Excel submission process, which included a full upload of all currently certified products each time, XML submissions allow for CBs to send information on one or more of their certified products at a time and to make modifications to those certifications over time. In addition, the data will be validated thoroughly via the XML standard. Communication between web services is conducted using a SOAP-based API defined in the Web-Service Definition Language (WSDL) file listed below.

Developers should consult the technical documentation below for more information regarding active web services, authentication and validation protocols, naming conventions, requirements, and testing.
