      • Human - Right skill sets to match priority tasks
      • Financial - UN/CEFACT needs funding

                                                Future Challenges

The UNECE Executive Committee will review in
  October 2007:

• All PG Mandates & TORs which terminate in 2007
• Under UN rules, there are no Permanent Groups
• PGs can be extended for two years at a time
• To obtain extensions each PG will have to provide
  serious justification
• This means that each PG will have to show its POW,
  what it has achieved in terms of deliverables, future
  plans & deliverables over the next two
  years.UN/CEFACT will have to report back every year.

• User Requirements
   • External standards organizations are interested in submitting
     candidate core components to UN/CEFACT using XML
   • Tool vendors are interested in building support for CCTS, but
     are looking for XML syntax standards for CCTS constructs
• Specification Purpose
   • Provide consistent pattern for XML serialization of core
     component artefacts
• Approach
   • Develop requisite UN/CEFACT XML schema modules for
     defining submitting and storing Core Component Technical
     Specification (CCTS) constructs in XML
              • compliant to the UN/CEFACT Core Components Technical
                Specification
              • Compliant to the UN/CEFACT XML Naming and Design Rules

•    The overall Registry metamodel is capable of handling current
     UN/CEFACT requirements
•    Registry federation is still in a primitive state
•    Level of granularity for the management of discrete Registry artefacts
     (e.g. down to the basic attribute) can increase complexity of
     implementation
•    Registry artefacts can be suitably governed by a classification scheme
•    Several concurrent classification schemes can be applied
•    The discovery process of Registry content is adequately defined
•    The Registry user interface / connector approach was satisfactory
