papiNet Announces Public Review Period for Six New Messages
Press release from the issuing company
Brussels and Alexandria, VA (June 17, 2002) - The members and sponsoring organizations of papiNet- the global electronic standards initiative of the paper and forest products industry - announce a 45 day public review period from July 1 - August 15 for six additional business documents, or messages. The messages to be submitted for public review are: Product Attributes, Usage, Information Request, Inventory Status, Order Status, and Inventory Change.
After the public review period these messages will join the existing ten-message suite that provides the ability for the paper industry and its customers to electronically communicate business transactions involved in the procurement, order fulfillment, and inventory management processes.
The papiNet standard facilitates electronic commerce between the paper and forest products industry and its customers by providing messages that standardize the transmission of business information between trading partners. The standards development process will continue with new messages being designed to support business processes in transportation, manufacturing, and product quality.
The public is invited to review the proposed additions to the papiNet standard and comment on them during the 45 day review period that begins on July 1, 2002 and will conclude on August 15, 2002. The messages being proposed can be downloaded from http://www.papinet.org/review.asp as of July 1, 2002.
In addition to the information on the proposed messages, complete documentation for the published messages is available on the papiNet web site. An Implementation Guide, case study, and data coordination tools are also available. Visit www.papinet.org for further information.
