# ECIA API
The ECIA API provides partners the ability to retrieve authorized search results and customize the presentation of those results on their web sites or applications. Implementation of the ECIA API requires that the partner have the technical capacity to perform server-side programming. If a partner requires a simpler integration option, please see the Distributor Stock Service documentation.
Note: Inventory from authorized distributors that do not participate on the ECIAauthorized site may be included for a member manufacturer upon request and review by ECIA.
