Subject: comment on genericode specification

Dear TC members,
The New Zealand Ministry of Education continues to use code lists in
Genericode format, and in conjunction with the OASIS UBL Methodology for Code
List and Value Validation (UMCLVV 0.8).

For over 15 months now we find that the Genericode specification meets our
needs well and without modifications.

The benefits in particular are:

- Standardised XML format for code lists

- Standardised meta data identifying the code list, owner and list version

- Code list changes necessitating a version change

- Data exchange partners can unambiguously share the code list definitions in

- Genericode is a major step forward in code list interoperability


I fully support the Genericode specification becoming a full OASIS standard.

We also hope that more international and national code list standard setting
bodies will adopt the Genericode specification and publish their code lists
in this format.
Once again many thanks to the TC members for the excellent work.

Kind regards

    Juerg Tschumperlin
