Increase Sales and Profits with Great Data from the SDC!

SEMA understands what a challenge it can be to acquire quality product data, whether it’s weights and measures, accurate descriptions, current pricing , UPC codes and the like, or rich vehicle application data to power year/make/model look ups.  As a non-profit, industry-owned effort, our goal is simple…to provide a single source for quality product data, validated for compliance to our strict requirements and available for export in any format that receivers might require.

The heart of the SEMA Data Co-op (SDC) is the centralized data repository, which is based in the Auto Care Association industry data standards of ACES and PIES. Product data is brought into the repository by each supplier (manufacturer) using special on-boarding tools to ensure completeness and quality.  Once the data is validated, it is stored securely in the repository and made available to receivers based on permission from the supplier, who is the owner of the data.

Exports are available in standard formats defined by the SEMA BTC (Business Technology Committee) and AWDA (Automotive Warehouse Distributors Association), standard ACES and PIES XML, or a custom format designed especially for your needs.
