  • Retrieve Address information including exact formats for Addresses known to the Seller 
  • Retrieve Service Site information including exact formats for Service Sites known to the Seller 
  • Determine whether it is feasible for the Seller to deliver a particular Product with a given configuration to a particular geographic location if applicable. 

This document supports the requirements defined in MEF 55, LSO Reference Architecture, March 2016 (Section 8.11 Partner Management for LSO) for partner interactions over the Sonata interface. Both Buyer and Seller will utilize information contained within this document.
