OASIS UBL-related announcements and public reviews: UBL 2.2 public review

February 2, 2017  |  UBL

The OASIS Universal Business Language (UBL) Technical Committee announced a finalized work product and two public reviews of three new work products. As you most probably know UBL is used in transportation and in procurement by governments and companies.

Start of UBL 2.2 public review

The first public review of UBL 2.2, the successor to UBL 2.1 – ISO/IEC 19845:2015, begins February 1, 2017 and closes March 17, 2017: https://www.oasis-open.org/news/announcements/ubl-v2-2-begins-45-day-public-review-ends-march-17th

This specification defines the Universal Business Language (UBL) version 2.2, an open library of standard electronic XML business documents for procurement and transportation such as purchase orders, invoices, transport logistics and waybills.

UBL 2.2 is that it is completely backward-compatible with UBL 2.0. UBL 2.2 is technically a minor release however it does add 16 new document types for eTendering, for transportation, and for business directories and agreements. This brings the total number of UBL business documents to 81.

Finalized Business Document Naming and Design Rules Version 1.0

The finalized Business Document Naming and Design Rules Version 1.0 OASIS Standard dated 18 January 2017 was made public today at: http://docs.oasis-open.org/ubl/Business-Document-NDR/v1.0/Business-Document-NDR-v1.0.html This is a specification for modeling the structure of business documents with UN/CEFACT Core Component Technical Specification (CCTS) Version 2.01 and then creating XSD validation artefacts for XML documents
