The purpose of this document is to define globally consistent invoicing processes for the worldwide supply chains, using the UN/CEFACT Modelling Methodology (UMM) approach and Unified Modelling Language to describe and detail the business processes and transactions involved. The structure of this document is ased on the structure of the UN/CEFACT Business Requirements Specification (BRS) document reference CEFACT/ICG/005. 

The first draft of the Business Requirements Specification (BRS) was presented at the September 2004 UN/CEFACT Forum to the TBG1 members for review and comments from the other regions. Based on comments received TBG1 has drafted the final version of the BRS for further processing through the UN/CEFACT Forum process with the goal of developing a UN/CEFACT ebXML standard message. The current version 2.00.06 encompasses requirement updates provided by the Agriculture sector (FlorEcom), the Automotive sector (UN/CEFACT Japan Committee - JEC), and cross-sectoral (Forum elektronische Rechnung Deutschland – FeRD).
