The purpose of this document is to define globally consistent ordering processes for worldwide supply chains, using the UN/CEFACT Modeling Methodology (UMM) approach and Unified Modeling Language to describe and detail the business processes and transactions involved. The structure of this document is based 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 prior to the September 2005 UN/CEFACT Forum to the TBG1 members for review and comments from the other regions. After the UN/CEFACT Forum meeting in Dublin in March 2007, the BRS was further developed with requirements contributed from TBG1 members such as GS1, UBL, EDIFrance, US Department of Defense, and others. Also requirements were implemented from Construction (TBG 6) and from the Finance sector (TBG 5).
