Danish Government Requires Public Sector to Use UBL

As of February 1, all invoicing in Denmark's public sector is legally
required to be implemented through Universal Business Language (UBL) v0.7.
The Danish Government estimates that it will save 94 million euro (177
million dollars) per year by standardizing UBL Invoices, and could save as
much as 160 million euros (199 million dollars) per year if they standardize
UBL Purchase Orders as well.


Create OASIS Committees in Order to Promote Standards

Organizations investing resources to create OASIS Standards may also
consider working to educate the marketplace on the importance of these
specifications. OASIS members may form Committees or Sub-Committees to
promote the adoption of standards. For more information on creating a
promotional Committee or Sub-Committee, please e-mail
