My understanding is that UBL is the *only* implementation and 
deployment of CCTS 2.01.

In the UBL schema set you will find CCTS 2.01 fragments with the 
UN/CEFACT copyright.  I'm unaware of any other global project using 
these schema fragments ... for example:

As CCTS 2.01 is currently implemented in UBL 2.0, changing at this 
point to CCTS 3 would introduce incompatibilities requiring the need 
for a new major version.  OASIS has already indicated it will not 
produce a new major version of UBL and will focus on maintaining 
minor revisions of UBL 2 to support current market needs for UBL 
deployment.  A UBL 2.1 is planned for release in 2009 to address some 
of the growing requirements for 2.0, and it will be done in a 
fully-backward compatible fashion, thus not requiring existing 2.0 
deployments to change.  I don't think the committee will be changing 
to CCTS 3 for these reasons.

Perhaps are you referring to the core component library CCL?  There 
is an identified project within UBL and UN/CEFACT TBG 17 to align the 
UBL 2.1 library with CCL 08B (this has been in the works for a while 
and most recently minuted just this week):


There have been presentations about this, a recent one at the UBL 
International 2008 conference in Rome in April, and you'll find an 
archive of the presentations here where Tim McGrath documented the plan:


I hope this helps.
