Background Information


The Libraries and Schema Focal Point is responsible for the development of the UN/CEFACT Core Component Library (CCL) and works to ensure consistency and harmonization of Core Components submitted from all business domains and sectors, contributing to a concise and well-defined glossary of Core Components, business information entities (BIE), data types, business terms, business data semantic definitions, and document assemblies (CCBDA). In addition, the Focal Point shares responsibility for the UNECE Code Lists with the Code List Focal Point and the UN/EDIFACT Focal Point. The CCL is used to produce UN/CEFACT XML schema, Requirement Specification Mappings (RSMs) and Reference Data Models. The Libraries and Schema Focal Point is the successor of TBG17 “Core Component Harmonization”.
