The OASIS Universal Business Language (UBL) TC  members have recently approved a Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted it for 30-day public review:
Business Document Naming and Design Rules Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 01 / Public Review Draft 01
16 March 2016
This specification prescribes a set of naming and design rules used to create XML document model validation artefacts (W3C Schema XSD files and OASIS Context/value association files) associated with abstract information bundles formally described using the Core Component Technical Specification 2.01 [CCTS].
NOTE: For the convenience of readers familiar with the previously-published “UBL Naming and Design Rules Version 3.0” Committee Specification Public Review Draft 02, please note that the normative, technical content of this new work product was derived from and is identical to that publication.
Non-normative content from that spec has been incorporated into a new Committee Note Draft whose public review will be announced separately.
Public Review Period:
The public review starts 05 April 2016 at 00:00 UTC and ends 04 May 2016 at 23:59 UTC.
