> Statement from the CSG on the forward direction for UN/CEFACT's 
> E-Business standards. 
> Following the successful completion of the development stage of 
> ebXML on time in Vienna on 11 May, and the conclusion of a 
> Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between UN/CEFACT and OASIS, the 
> CSG has been considering the forward direction and organisation of 
> UN/CEFACT's standards development in e-business. 
> Under the MoU responsibility for the maintenance and further 
> development of ebXML specifications has been allocated between 
> OASIS and UN/CEFACT. UN/CEFACT will be responsible for Business 
> Processes and Core Components.
> Taking this into account, and the e-business strategy approved at 
> UN/CEFACT's March 2001 Plenary, the CSG believes that the most 
> effective way forward is to bring together the expertise and 
> resources of the UN/EDIFACT Working Group (EWG), the Business 
> Processes Analysis Working Group, (BPAWG) and the Business Process 
> and Core Component work arising out of the ebXML initiative, and to 
> integrate them into a new Working Group which will be able to 
> address the needs of all of its users. 
> The development of this new Working Group - the E-Business Working 
> Group - will require considerable planning and consultation and the 
> CSG have mandated a special team to undertake this task which 
> includes the Chairs of all the relevant groups. The CSG also 
> believes that the September Rotterdam EWG meeting (10-14 September 
> 2001) provides the perfect platform for starting the moves to the 
> new structure and, therefore, will be organising concurrent 
> meetings of the various groups so as to finalise the details of the 
> terms of reference, work programme, organisation, resource 
> requirements and launch date of the new group.  
> Geneva, 17 May 2001. 
> Notes 
> UN/CEFACT is the UN's Centre for Trade Facilitation and Electronic 
> Business (www.uncefact.org) 
> OASIS is the Organisation for the Advancement of Structured 
> Information Standards (www.oasis-open.org)  
> The CSG is the Steering Group of UN/CEFACT 
> ebXML is the joint initiative between UN/CEFACT and OASIS to 
> develop a framework for the exchange of e-business information 
> using XML. Its rapid development stage was successfully completed 
> on time in Vienna on 11 May 2001. (www.ebXML.org)
