  23. Introduction • Ardath Paxton Mann, Assistant Deputy Minister, Western Economic Diversification. 8th Forum – Vancouver, Canada

  24. Welcome 8th UN/CEFACT Forum Vancouver, Canada Dick Raman

  25. Status Update • Last year's plenary showed the progress UN/CEFACT has been making to move forward • The recent external evaluation of UNECE has also provided a strengthened governance framework • These are important opportunities, encouraging a more efficient division of labour within the UNECE and within the community of international institutions and standards development organisations which have may evolved a set of overlapping tasks where duplication of work can be reduced • The Bureau has been reviewing UN/CEFACT strategy and its work programme to evaluate the adequacy of resources - especially from its Secretariat in Geneva and gaps that might be filled through extra-budgetary funding 8th Forum – Vancouver, Canada

  26. Status Update • In proceeding along this path the Bureau is reaching out for input from the stakeholders perspectives of countries, sectors and the standards development community and is envisaging to focus on this input during this year's plenary • All of this should help to strengthen the teamwork of the Bureau, the Secretariat, the Forum and its Management - each of which has its own functions and tasks • An important step will come from mapping details of the work programme with UN/CEFACT's products and services • By sharply pinpointing what projects are aiming to achieve within their envisaged time horizons, this can serve to facilitate greater outreach and involvement of those that may engage in greater participation and support • A more advocacy-oriented website design is also expected to contribute to awareness-building in the context of UN/CEFACT's global remit 8th Forum – Vancouver, Canada

  27. Status Update • Core Components approach is fast gaining momentum • UN/CEFACT is regarded as the place where semantic harmonization can take place at the highest level • Industry groups now coming forward and declaring support for UN/CEFACT and for migration/alignment of their standards with the CC approach • UN/CEFACT needs the resources and buy-in of these external organizations • Financial, Marketing and Secretarial support urgently required 8th Forum – Vancouver, Canada

  28. Momentum • We have a unique opportunity to put ourselves on the map • With stronger support from UNECE • Provided we demonstrate our value • With stronger support from the market • Provided we focus on where we are in agreement • Not on where we differ. 8th Forum – Vancouver, Canada

  29. Interoperability • UN/CEFACT is uniquely positioned to solve • Business Interoperability • By providing a global semantic Framework • Getting the buy-in of the market • The Forum should now • Unite and Focus on the key priorities • Speed up stable deliverables • Welcome other SDOs to work with us • Many SDOs are contemplating our CC approach • We can expect important announcements 8th Forum – Vancouver, Canada

  32. WCO Framework of StandardsTo Secure and Facilitate Global Trade • WCO established the Framework as a minimum set of standards; members expected to implement the framework; 129 members have signed letter of intent • Harmonizes the advance electronic information on inbound, outbound and transit consignments based on employing the WCO Customs Data Model for electronic Customs messaging • Application of risk management approach to address security threats • Outbound inspection of high-risk consignments being exported, preferably using non-intrusive detection equipment • Customs will provide benefits to businesses that meet minimal supply chain security standards and best practices UN/CEFACT Forum Vancouver March 2006

  34. Both Data Models: Reflect Regulatory and Conventional requirements Are based on UNTDED Are based on the UNECE Recommendation 1 (UNLK) Are aware of the requirement for paper to electronic (Digital Paper) migration paths via UNLK to eUNLK Alignment of UNeDocs and WCO Data Set into one model will meet the requirement for flexible document structures for Single Windows across TBG domains of trade, transport, customs, finance and OGA requirements WCO Data Set is a sub-set of UNeDocs with TBG cross-domain data inter-relationships Traders will be able to exchange Customs Data electronically using UNeDocs XML transactions e.g. to develop UNeDocs National Customs declaration document structures WCO Data Model TBG2 UNeDocs UN/CEFACT Forum Vancouver March 2006

  35.
