Subject: Re: [ubl-lcsc] [code] ISO considering charging for commercial useof code lists

Welcome back sue,

it is good to know that UN/ECE can provide many of these.  With respect 
to your final question, it would help if you could look at the package 
Stepehen just posted 'draft 4 models of UBL 1.0 alpha' and particularly 
try and populate column I "External Source Agency" of the Code List 
Catalogue with your recommendations/suggestions.  to date we have not 
paid too much attention to this but as we move from theory into practice 
we will have to start considering our options here.  in principal the 
recommendations of CEFACT (or more correctly UN/ECE) would be the first 

at this stage we are not necessarily asking agencies to provide the 
 schemas for these codes - just the raw data.  my guess is we shall 
build these ourselves as part of 1.0 alpha (and beta) then during trial 
implementation we will start to get them outsourced.

we plan to discuss this as part of the review on tuesday's call.
