Subject: [bdxr] Exchange Header Envelope (XHE) Version 1.0 OASIS Standard published

OASIS Members,

OASIS is pleased to announce the publication of its newest OASIS Standard, approved by the members on 25 April 2021:

Exchange Header Envelope (XHE) Version 1.0
OASIS Standard
25 April 2021

The Exchange Header Envelope (XHE) has been developed jointly by UN/CEFACT and OASIS as the successor to the UN/CEFACT Standard Business Document Header (SBDH) version 1.3 and the OASIS Business Document Envelope (BDE) Version 1.1.

XHE defines a business-oriented artifact either referencing (as a header) or containing (as an envelope) a payload of one or more business documents or other artifacts with supplemental semantic information about the collection of payloads as a whole. An exchange header envelope describes contextual information important to the sender and receiver about the payloads, without having to modify the payloads in any fashion. This vocabulary is modeled using the UN/CEFACT Core Component Technical Specification Version 2.01.

The TC received 4 Statements of Use from IBM, ph-xhe open source project, Chasquis Consulting, and Efact.
