Subject: [ebxml-jc] submission of ebXML specs to ISO


At the MoU meeting in Paris earlier this month, Ray Walker and I met 
with Sophie Clivio from the ISO central secretariat to discuss the 
submission of the ebXML specifications for approval under the ISO 
process. We decided that the eight specs (TA and Req from Vienna; RS, 
RIM, Msg, and CPPA from OASIS; and BPSS and CC from CEFACT) would be 
submitted as a package accompanied by a cover letter that Ray and I 
would write. The first six of these pieces would be submitted in 
January, and the two pieces from CEFACT would be submitted as soon as 
they are complete, which Ray expects will be quite soon.

The ebXML specs will be submitted to a working group formed under ISO 
TC154 that includes representatives from other ISO TCs appropriate to 
the various topic areas of the submission; for example, there will be a 
representative from JTC1 SC32 to look at the registry specs. The TC will 
vote on the individual pieces as they are submitted, so the Vienna and 
OASIS pieces don't have to wait for the completion of the CEFACT pieces 
in order to be approved. The specs will be considered as Technical 
Specifications under the ISO process. Balloting for a TS takes three 
months; we are hoping to have this completed in time to announce the 
results at an ebXML program that the ebXML JMT is organizing at the XML 
Europe 2003 conference in London in May.

The respective organizations (OASIS and CEFACT) will continue to own and 
maintain the specs, e.g. the OASIS TCs can continue work on their specs 
to advance them to v3. Later versions (e.g. v3) can also be submitted 
for ISO approval at a later date. Once the specifications are finally 
complete we may wish to submit them to ISO for consideration as 
International Standards.
