Initiative Archive (1999-2001)

ebXML began in the fall of 1999 as effort by UN/CEFACT and OASIS to initiate a worldwide project to enable the consistent use of XML for the exchange of all electronic business data.

The ebXML Initiative was an 18-month endeavor in which industry groups, standards bodies, vendors, consultants and users from virtually every continent on the globe participated. In May 2001, ebXML met its deadline by delivering a suite of specifications, white papers and other related documents.
