Subject: RE: [ubl-dev] UBL Order


For the schemeUri attribute, it may be useful to reuse a proposal that will
be incorporated in the next ebXML CPA specification (but which has no
dependency on ebXML), and that is mentioned in:

If you follow this approach, the relevant UBL snippet would look like:


The advantage of this is that the URI schema allows any ISO 6523 approved
classification system to be used. 
For a list of ICDs, see:

The codes "0002", "0084", "0085", "0087", "0089", "0094", "0096", "0105",
"0106", "0107", "0108" reference Chamber of Commerce identifiers from
France, Greece, Switzerland, Belgium, UK, Germany, Denmark, Portugal, the
Netherlands, Sweden, Australia, respectively. 

Replacing "0060" by "0088" would reference a GS1 Global Location Number
(GLN) instead of a DUNS number. 

The CEN workshop on Cyber Identities has a discussion of all these concepts
in a recent CWA:

This document is open for comments according to
berid.asp.  It states they are going to register a "urn:iso6523" prefix,
which would allow the above to be expressed more compactly as:

  <cbc:ID schemeURI="urn:iso6523:0060">12345</cbc:ID>

All questions are very welcome, Jeremy.  I hope UBL-Dev participants do not
hold back.

Different volunteers have different perspectives on UBL and can help in
different areas.  I cannot help you much on the business side, but I have a
comment below regarding identifiers.

I see that Roberto has answered the above questions regarding business

Yes, I would have used that, and I see Roberto endorses it as a general
method of identification.

But I wanted to say it would help to identify the identification method
since many identification methods might produce similar identifiers.  I
think perhaps something like the following would be unambiguous and

Thank you for asking them!
