The TMG is pleased to announce the approval of the project proposal to Define Conformance to UN/CEFACT Artefacts.


The purpose of this project is to provide the global user community a set of guidelines that can be used to provide level of confidence in the alignment of available technical solutions to UN/CEFACT approved artefacts.
There are three planned phases to this project. 

  • The first phase of the project is to define a set of common terminology that will be used to provide clarity for this project.  For example, multiple definitions exist for Compliance and Conformance, but only one set of definitions can be used for this project.
  • The second phase of the project includes a review of UN/CEFACT artefacts to classify the important aspects of each artefact and it's relevance to Compliance/Conformance (as defined).  The final result of this phase is a matrix that clearly outlines each artefact and is used as the basis of the third phase.
  • The third phase of the project is to determine the need for levels of Compliance/Conformance.  Each level will be defined and the matrix of artefacts will be tied to these levels for simplicity and clarity.  This clarity is for both those interested in attaining a specific level and for the general public to understand what each level means.

Please find full text of the project proposal at COD - Project Proposal.

The project is conducted within UN/CEFACT's Techniques & Methodologies Group (TMG) at the working group EBAWG.

The project leader is [~andrew.hearn]
