The ​​Air Transport Settlement System (ATSS) employs electronic forms of ATSS Standard Traffic Documents (ATSS STDs) to issue air transportation contract for passenger, baggage and related services.

The ATSS Standard Traffic Documents comply with international standards. The information related to Form Codes 610 – 619 for different types of the ATSS traffic documents is shown in Attachment A to Recommended Practice 1720а, IATA Passenger Services Conference Resolutions Manual (PSCRM). The range of ATSS STDs is allocated depending on the method how transportation/services are issued. For ATSS e-documents with service type codes 81, 76, 75, and 98, as of July 1, 2014, serial numbers are generated from the range of Form Code 10.

E-forms of ATSS standard traffic documents include e-ticket and Electronic Miscellaneous Document (EMD)​​. EMD is used to issue ancillary services provided for passenger, and various fees/charges collected from passenger. The ATSS electronic documents may be used as well to issue the ancillaries.

Number of ATSS e-ticket/EMD is generated in TCH E-ticketing Centre (TCH ETC) from relevant stock of ATSS traffic documents when issuing a transportation/service.

To issue ATSS e-tickets, accredited agencies need to receive quotas of ATSS e-tickets and ATSS e-documents.
The 1st revision of the "Technology for Order, Distribution, Account and Control over the Use of ATSS Electronic Tickets /Electronic Documents Quotas, and for Order and Obtaining of Forms in TCH" describes how an Agent may apply and obtain the quotas of ATSS e-tickets and ATSS e-documents.
To obtain quota of ATSS e-tickets/ATSS e-documents, or forms, an Agent must file its application to TCH via 'My Account' in electronic form.

The issuance of transportation on ATSS STDs shall comply with the provisions of the "ATSS STD Ticketing Handbook" (in Russian language). For a brief description of the information shown on an ATSS STD, please see these Tips​.

TCH validators are used when issuing transportation on ATSS STDs and carrying out various transactions. TCH validator is a stamp used for manual validation of documents at the time of issuance/exchange/refund of transportation services on TCH's stock; and used to identify agency (its POSs).

Order, provision, accounting and control over the use of TCH validators must comply with the provisions of the "Technology for Order, Distribution, Record and Control of TCH Stamps (Validators) Use".
