eForms schemas provisional release (20/12/2019)

This is a provisional release of the schemas. It is currently based on an interim version of Pre-Award UBL 2.3 document types and is therefore not yet ready for use; it may still be subject to changes.

The approach adopted is the following: we keep the whole UBL set of elements but only support the use of a subset.

Advantages:

  • Rules are outside the schema,
  • Adding extra fields for which a UBL element already exists will not require the definition of a new schema,
  • Increasing reusability of elements while reducing interdependencies to the minimum. Together with the import and include mechanisms, this simplifies the integration process of any new component release,
  • For elements, which are mandatory in eForms but designed as optional in UBL, dedicated rules are defined. The rules-based approach reduces the impact of a change (e.g.: a regulatory change on the mandatory aspect will only lead to a rule update).

The schemas and the documentation can still be subject to changes. They should therefore be considered as provisional.

eForms schemas provisional release v. 1.1 (14/09/2020)

This is a provisional release of the schemas covering as well the following forms:

  • Call for expressions of interest (to be used by EU institutions, bodies and agencies only) (CEI), Information notice about European Company (EC 2157/2001) or European Cooperative Society (EC 1435/2003) (X01), Information notice about European Economic Interest Grouping (EEC 2137/85) (X02)
  • Forms related to the Regulation 1370/2007 – Public passenger transport by rail and by road (T01, T02)

It is based on the latest UBL 2.3 candidate and will be subject to few later changes.

 

eForms schemas provisional release (13/11/2020)

With this schema provisional release, we are close to a finalised version.

This version covers all form types:

  • The 40 Regulation Annex Forms (1 to 40),
  • The extended forms (E1 to E5),
  • The other forms (CEI, X01, X02, T01, T02).

A release note identifies the new elements, most of which are related to extended eForms (forms E1 to E5).

Because of the difference in models, some differences exist between the Regulation Annex and the Schemas (based on the UBL standard); these differences are listed in the following document.

 

Further information will be provided in the near future. You may send questions and observations to the helpdesk via https://simap.ted.europa.eu/contact with the mention “eForms” in the subject.
