Subject: RE: FAQ document review minutes


Correct:  The requirements document, paragraph 2 under Business 
Requirements, says ...

The scope of the ebXML business requirements is to meet the needs for the 
business side of both business to business (B2B) and business to consumer 
(B2C) activities. Consumer requirements of the B2C model are beyond the 
scope of the ebXML technical specifications. Application-to-application 
(A2A) exchanges within an enterprise may also be able to use the ebXML 
technical specifications, however ebXML A2A solutions will not be developed 
at the expense of simplified B2B and B2C solutions.

The scope therefore covers the business end of interactions with consumers.

Has there been any discussion of ebXML Phase 2???? Best regards.
