5 Choreography

The choreography by which a company can provide an individual message defined in the Recording Data and Rights Notification Standard to a business partner is defined by the supporting Recording Data and Rights Choreography Dtandard (RDR-C).

The figure below shows the choreography of processes that the Recording Data and Rights Notification Standard enables. The figure does not show the use of manifests or acknowledgements, which is described in RDR-C.
