UBL (Universal Business Language) define a common XML library of business documents (purchase orders, invoices, etc.). UBL was developed by an OASIS Technical Committee with participation from a variety of industry data standards organizations. UBL is an open standard owned by OASIS, and was approved as a ISO standard in 2015. On 31 October 2014, the European Commission decided that UBL version 2.1 developed by the OASIS is eligible for referencing in public procurement.
For us, UBL is our ‘maternal language’, while it is the DocXchange’s internal reference since 2012.
UBL Ready is the successor of a Dutch project back in 2015, financed by the Ministry of Economical Businesses, in order to allow financial software suppliers (and other suppliers) to include UBL.
The project was successful, with over 50 implementations, meaning 75% of the Dutch IMM market. After the project was finalized, the need for support in UBL implementation remained, and thus UBL Ready was launched at European level.
