Subject: RE: [ubl-tsc] TSC Action Item followup from TC

Thank you Roberto for your comments. I like the idea of adding a BBIE in the
Status ABIE that allows a code with an entry of something like "This is a
cancellation of this containing document."
And do you know if EDIFACT has a cancellation message?

Subject: Re: [ubl-tsc] TSC Action Item followup from TC

The invoicing process has the credit note for full/partial cancellation.

Let's say that a simple cancellation message is not sufficient for legal
documents if they have been already processed by the receiver.

The cancellation is quite common for:
- Bookings (not just in the shipping industry)
- Bill of Ladings
- Orders

In sectors like shipping/transport the "override" concept is often adopted
because the partial modification of a previous instruction/document is not
always a simple thing from the implementation point of view (so here I am
not talking about the message itself but how to process it once received).
The override is pratically used to cancel and substitute a previous message.

Maybe we could provide any UBL message with the possibility to "cancel" or
"override" the whole document or just a set of line items.

The Purchase Order can be used as a sample by inspecting the cac:LineItem
which offers a cbc:LineStatusCode.

Using its default UBL code list we can assert that the line status is: 
"Line has been cancelled".

See UBL 2.0 code list under cl/gc/default/LineStatusCode-2.0.gc

All UBL documents using the LineItem ABIE are ready for cancelling a set of
line items or even all of them.

Probably we could add a similar BIE on the document root named "StatusCode"
and pointing to a similar code list but for the whole document.

For instance: DocumentStatusCode-2.1.gc

Hope this helps,
