Subject: 60 days Public Review of OASIS CIQ Specifications v3.0

Hi all,

The much awaited OASIS CIQ Specifications v3.0 has now been released for
second round of 60 days public review. This specification is now powerfully
designed to address the practical challenges faced by organizations
GLOBALLY in representing, interoperating/exchanging and managing party
centric data. Following are some of the key features of this set of
- Ability to handle party data (names, address and party centric
information) ir-respective of countries, cultures, races and
geographical locations
- Flat XML data models as opposed to complex hierarchical XML data
models with supporting UML models
- Ability for user to define "semantics" to the data to meet their
requirements without modifying the data model and thereby, ensuring
the represented data conforms to the CIQ XML schema specifications
- Ability to use any code lists without modifying the CIQ XML schema
specifications using the upcoming open industry standard for Code List
namely the OASIS Code List (Genericode) from OASIS Code List TC and
the UBL Methodology for Code List Value and Validation
- Ability to define business rules to constraint the CIQ XML Schema
specifications without modifying the CIQ XML schema specifications
using industry standard approach and industry standards (This feature
enables users to restrict the CIQ data models to their specific needs
and at the same time ensuring that the represented data conforms to
the CIQ data models. e.g. A country can apply this feature to
constrain the CIQ Address data model to its specific country address
data model without modifying the CIQ Address model)
- Ability to use GeoRSS/GML of Open Geospatial Consortium to represent
location coordinates
- Ability to define data quality attributes to the party data represented

We look forward to your review and feedback that will further help us
to improve the v3.0 specifications.

v3.0 of the specifications to define Party Relationships (person to
person, person to organisation, and organisation to organisation) is
in progress.
