FYI. Takes some of us back, since UBL was one of the initial reasons we formed 
Ontolog Forum in 2002, i.e., to help provide an underlying ontology for it. In 
doing so, we realized ontological engineering really needed a more general 
community of practice.    (01)

Subject: [members] 15-day Public Review for Universal Business Language v2.1    (02)

The OASIS Universal Business Language TC members [1] have produced an updated 
Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted this specification for 15-day 
public review:    (03)

Universal Business Language Version 2.1
Committee Specification Draft 3 / Public Review Draft 3
23 February 2013    (04)

Specification Overview:    (05)

This specification defines the Universal Business Language (UBL), version 2.1. 
UBL is a generic XML interchange format for business documents that can be 
restricted or extended to meet the requirements of particular industries. This 
version includes 65 business documents used in the procurement and 
transportation domains (e.g.: invoices, purchase orders, waybills, 
transportation status messages, etc.).     (06)

TC Description:     (07)

The OASIS Universal Business Language technical committee is defining a 
royalty-free library of standard electronic XML business documents for various 
domains. Development is with participation from a variety of industry data 
standards organizations. UBL is designed to plug directly into existing 
business, legal, auditing, and records management practices, eliminating the 
re-keying of data in existing fax- and paper-based supply chains and providing 
an entry point into electronic commerce for small and medium-sized businesses.     (08)

Public Review Period:    (09)

The public review starts 18 March 2013 and ends 02 April 2013. The 
specification was previously submitted for public review [2]. This 15-day 
review is limited in scope to changes made from the previous review. Changes 
are documented in Appendix B.3.5 [3].     (010)

This is an open invitation to comment. OASIS solicits feedback from potential 
users, developers and others, whether OASIS members or not, for the sake of 
improving the interoperability and quality of its technical work.    (011)
