Subject: Invitation to comment on UBL v2.2 from the UBL TC - ends March 13th

OASIS Members and other interested parties, 

We are pleased to announce that Universal Business Language Version 2.2 from the OASIS Universal Business Language TC [1] is now available for public review and comment. This is its third public review. 

The Universal Business Language (UBL) is an open library of standard electronic XML business documents for procurement and transportation such as purchase orders, invoices, transport logistics and waybills.

Version 2.2 is completely backward-compatible with UBL 2.0. This third release of V2.2 has been updated based on feedback from the previous public review. The comments received in that review and their resolution can be found at http://docs.oasis-open.org/ubl/csprd02-UBL-2.2/UBL-2.2-csprd02-comment-resolution-log.ods

The documents and related files are available here:
