Project DeliverablesThe deliverables from this project will include: • Technical specification of a o Machine-processable format, e.g. XML based format (leading format) o Transformation rules to a human readable format, e.g. HTML
Exit Criteria• The Technical Specification approved by the Bureau • Implementation verification from a minimum of two independent software tools, demonstrating the exchange
Project Team Membership and Required Functional ExpertiseMembership is open to UN/CEFACT Experts1 with deep knowledge in standards production and publication and awareness of implementers’ expectations.
Geographical FocusThe geographic focus of the project is global.
