Subject: Current Status of UBL's collaboration with UN/CEFACT

To avoid any confusion about recent announcements from UN/CEFACT, I have 
drafted a statement that outlines where we are on the path to convergence.

/At the UN/CEFACT Forum in Dublin (26-30 March 2007), work continued to 
foster integration on a common set of electronic business document 
standards based on the input and experience of UBL. This involved 
constructive meetings with working groups focused on harmonization, 
supply chain, e-procurement, e-government and technical methodologies.

A cross-domain project has been approved to further review public sector 
e-procurement requirements, providing a path for input from an envisaged 
workshop on "Implementation of electronic public procurement  in Europe" 
(CEN/ISSS WS/ePPE).  This will include profiles developed in the context 
of implementations of UBL in Northern Europe and Spain.  We see the 
first candidate release of UN/CEFACT's Cross Industry Invoice schema 
(see http://www.unece.org//cefact/prs/pr07_trd02e.pdf) as an opportunity 
to further this collaboration.
General notes taken at the closing plenary of the Dublin Forum can be
