ISO TS 15000-5 (ebXML Core Components Technical Specification, Version 2.01(ebCCTS))


ISO TS 15000-5 was first published in 2005, based on the UN/CEFACT publication of the Core Component Technical Specification 2.01. In 2008 it was reviewed and confirmed by ISO/TC 154 for continued publication. In 2011, ISO published Amendment 1 to ISO TS 15000-5, based on corrigendum published by UN/CEFACT.

During the ISO/TC 154 Plenary held in Geneva in September 2010 a small team was tasked with developing this position paper on the future of ISO 15000-5, based on a recommendation from the UK HoD that the TS be made an International Standard.

The secretariat is held by Bernd Bösler (DE/DIN), the convenorship by Mary Kay Blantz (US).
