Guidance regarding the use of the OASIS UBL logo


While a new UBL logo is being debated, the old UBL logo remains the current version and is the intellectual property of OASIS and can be used under the general terms and conditions of the OASIS licensing terms.


Draft committee note: https://www.oasis-open.org/committees/document.php?document_id=66208 (see also: https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/ubl/201911/msg00009.html).


Members are encouraged to provide feedback and suggest alternatives. Latest proposal:



Agreed to postpone final decision to next week.


UBL Payments and Finance Subcommittee (PayFin)


Does TC members approve UBL Payment Means Information Version 1.0 Working Draft 05 available at https://www.oasis-open.org/committees/document.php?document_id=66326&wg_abbrev=ubl as a Committee Note, subject to any editorial changes necessary for its publication, and designate the Word version of the note as authoritative?


Levine made the motion. Seconded by Ken. Agreed by all voting members present at the Pacific and Atlantic calls.


UBL Post-award




UBL Pre-award




UBL Transportation Subcommittee (TSC)


PEPPOL logistics was kicked off at a meeting December 2 in Copenhagen.


Next Transportation SC meeting being scheduled for December 10 at 15:00 CET.


UBL Naming and Design Rules Subcommittee (NDRSC)


Ken is exploring the use of digital signatures in the JSON UBL representation. JWS (used for example in the JWT) is a possibility. ETSI is working on a JAdES digital signature specification for JSON. Andrea to share more information. A ticket has been created to follow this subject: https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/UBL-270


JSON schema was updated in September 2019. Kenâs tests indicate new committee drafts are needed and changes to the JSON NDR rules need to be incorporated. Ken will prepare a new draft of the JSON NDR rules and new committee note drafts for the JSON serialization of UBL 2.1 and UBL 2.2 and will publish a draft for UBL 2.3 to go out at the same time as UBL 2.3 PRD02.


TC Liaisons


ISO TC 204/WG7


Agreed at the September 11, 2019 TC conference call to seek a formal liaison with ISO TC 204/WG7 specifically for collaborating on the new ISO 24533 specification.


We need to appoint a liaison, preferably someone who is a member of both groups. See also: https://www.oasis-open.org/policies-guidelines/liaison#liaisons


CEN TC 434


Agreed at the Copenhagen face-to-face meeting that the UBL TC is open to establish a formal liaison with CEN TC 434 to create a European or international standard for electronic invoicing, if there is an interest from the CEN TC.


Andrea will keep the UBL TC informed of any progress.




ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 32/WG 1 is open to establish a formal liaison. Ken and Andrea participated in the last WG 1 meeting. Andrea will post a progress report.

JIRA status and resolution value definitions

Necessary to review the definitions of ticket status and resolution in JIRA to align with the values that currently can be assigned.


Our current definitions are:


-  NEW: the issue has been created but not yet agreed to be in consideration or not for the development distribution

o  in order for the issue to become active work for the committee the new ticket must be changed to OPEN or it will not be seen in the "to do" filter

o  the other option on a new ticket is to change it to DEFERRED

o  please remember to look at the open filter to ensure visibility: https://issues.oasis-open.org/issues/?filter=12972

-  OPEN: the issue is in consideration for the development distribution

o  keep the issue OPEN when assigning to Ken for incorporation

o  please remember to add a comment regarding expectations whenever you assign an OPEN ticket to another person for any action

-  RESOLVED + Incomplete: the issue has been decided but not yet in test

-  RESOLVED + Applied: the issue is incorporated in test but not released

-  RESOLVED + Fixed: the issue is incorporated in a working draft version

-  RESOLVED + Later: the issue is still up for discussion for a future minor revision but not the current development

-  RESOLVED + No Action: considered as no action for any distribution

-  RESOLVED + Cannot Reproduce: considered as no action for distribution

-  APPLIED + Fixed: the issue is included in a public review (record the availability of the disposition once review opened)

-  DEFERRED: the issue is not in consideration for any minor revision

o  please remember to use this when creating new tickets for backwards-incompatible changes
