ISO/IEC 19845 Universal Business Language Version 2.1 (UBL v2.1)

 - as of 2015-11-25 this standard is now under publication:


 - regarding citing the work, we agreed earlier to use the following:

    OASIS Universal Business Language (UBL) v2.1 (ISO/IEC 19845)

 - the following would be used for a general reference:

    OASIS UBL (ISO/IEC 19845)

 - ACTION: all members please review the brand new list on our (under-used)
   wiki of where to send notifications of UBL 2.1 becoming ISO/IEC 19845
   (sign in with your regular OASIS member credentials):


 - when pointing people to OASIS UBL (ISO/IEC 19845), it is probably safest
   to point to the OASIS-mounted resources, as we would not wish to confuse
   people regarding the more limited ISO copyright constraints:


   - for discussion at the teleconference, please note the location where
     other PAS submissions to ISO have been available from ISO does have
     some statements regarding copyright, use and download (we don't know
     that this is where ISO/IEC 19845 will be listed, but it is likely):


UBL 2.2

 - in our governance document we posited that UBL would be revised on a
   three-year basis:
 - to meet this, we have to have all of the changes in by January 2016
- all members are reminded to contact those needing additions to UBL to review
   the governance document and get the discussion started for including any
changes, as additions submitted in January 2016 likely will not have time to
   be discussed before we have to cut off accepting them
   - users of the common library are encouraged to review the governance
     document and to consider submitting their suggestions for consideration
     by the committee in a future revision
 - at the November 4 meeting we reconfirmed our deadline of January 2016 for
   preliminary requirements for UBL 2.2, and that we will then review the
   status of requirements from other stakeholders
 - the pre-award committee is working on more experimentation:


 - at this point no new requirements expected from PC434 semantic model of the
   core elements of an electronic invoice
   - a public review of the PC434 work is now available
- Oriol noted a gap in UBL 2.1 regarding new requirements for the Notification
   document; he will work on filling that gap and creating remaining elements

Naming and Design Rules

 - comments for the committee note regarding the application of our NDR
   in UBL 2.1 are still in the works
 - the NDR document itself is ready for acceptance as the second draft,
   ready for the second public review, which must be for a minimum of
   15 days, but could be longer if we wish:

   "The initial public review of a public review draft must take
    place for a minimum of 30 days, and any subsequent reviews
    must be held for a minimum of 15 days."

 Motion 1: Committee Specification Draft

  Committee Specification Draft 02 packaged together at:


  ... and designate the XML version of the document as authoritative,
  subject to any editorial changes required by OASIS TC Administration?
