OASIS members and other interested parties,
The OASIS ebXML Core (ebCore) TC  members have recently approved a Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted it for 30-day public review:
ebCore Agreement Update Specification Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 01 / Public Review Draft 01
20 October 2015
The ebCore Agreement Update specification defines message exchanges and an XML schema to support the exchange of messaging service communication agreement update requests and the associated responses to such requests. The main initial application of the specification is the exchange of X.509 certificates for certificate rollover, but the schema offers extensibility for other types of updates.
The specification is based on the concept of messaging service communication agreements and the creation of new agreements as independently identified updated copies of existing agreements. The specification supports ebMS2, ebMS3 and AS4 but can also be used with other protocols that have a concept of communication agreement.
The specification is independent of storage or interchange formats for configuration information.
