XML Web Services Submission Process

EPA uses an XML-based qualified product exchange (QPX) system for certification bodies (CBs) to submit information on products certified as ENERGY STAR via web services. Data submitted through these web services are validated against 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.
