UN/ECE - P1. Business neutral core component Library
Project leader: Sue Probert ( )

1. Objectives

    1.1 Purpose

    The purpose of the project is to compile harmonised Business Neutral Core Components as a data semantics foundation for developing document exchange structures to support global electronic business.

    1.2 Scope

    The scope for this project is to collate definitions for business neutral core components representing data irrespectively of their application in any of the business domains and to analyse and harmonise these into a cohesive catalogue to form the foundation of the UN/CEFACT Global Core Components Library.

2. Deliverables

The deliverables from the project are the basis of the Global Core Components Library:

  • A catalogue of Business Neutral Core Components including Core Component Type, Basic Core Components and Aggregate Core Components.
  • Data Dictionary.
  • Vocabulary of referenced terms.

3. Functional Expertise of Membership

The project team is a group of experts with a balanced profile of skills and expertise in information analysis, knowledge of different types of business data and in the presentation and documentation of technical material, either individually or collectively as a group.

4. Geographical Focus

The focus is global and cross-sectoral within the functional area of business data. Each UN/CEFACT head of delegation may designate one or more experts to the project team. In doing so, they may delegate this task to one or more organizations, which may be national, regional or international. Experts are expected to contribute to the work based solely on their expertise.

5. Initial Contributions

The following contributions are submitted as part of this proposal. It is understood that these are only for consideration by the project team and that other participants may submit their own contributions in order to ensure the gathering of as much information as possible from those with expertise and a material interest in the project but at the same time allow diverse voices to comment on the details of the projects and ensures that no single organization can dominate the process:

  • ebXML Core Components Catalogue.
  • A number of international and national catalogues on business data definitions and core components.

Statement of resource requirements

Participants in the project shall provide resources for their own participation. The existence and functioning of the project shall not require any additional resources from the UN/ECE secretariat.
