This segment is used to specify additional or substitutional item identification codes such as a buyer's or seller's item number.
Examples:
In this example the PIA segment is used to provide an additional identification to the GTIN provided in the LIN segment. The GTIN 5412345111115 provided in the LIN segment refers to the internal buyer's item number AB7456.
In this example the PIA segment is used to provide a GTIN for substitution. The product identified in the LIN segment by the GTIN 5412345111115 can be substituted by the product identified in the PIA segment by the GTIN 4000862141662 in case the former is not available.
In this example the 'Substituted For' PIA segment is used to provide the GTIN of the product which is being substituted for the former primary GTIN. The new code 5412345111184 would be included in the message in the 'Product Identification' PIA segment.
This example details the HIBC code 2209953C001L which is provided as the primary product code because no GTIN was provided in the LIN segment.
           
Example:
PIA+1+568774:AC:23:9+1:AA:23:2+A:AA:23:2+1:AA:23:2+1:AA:23:2'
Example:
PIA+1+AB7456:IN'
Example:
PIA+2+4000862141662:SRV'
Example:
PIA+4+5410738251028:SRV'
