	SINGLE AS 4590 ADDRESS & SUPPLY CHAIN COMMUNITIES

Nick - as the organiser of the OASIS XML Conferences for the last 4 years
you will have the contacts that will understand the problems with two (2) 
electronic address formats in the Australian eCommerce XML Standard AS 4590.

The Business Community needs to ensure there is a single address 
format in AS4590 hence the proposal for you as Mr OASIS Australia to 
invite contacts to assist Standards Australia to reconvene the IS/11 
eCommerce Standards Committee

A	Federal & State Government committed to XML
B	Standards Australia & IS/11 Committee
C	Port Systems and eCommerce
D	Next Steps

A	FEDERAL GOVERNMENT COMMITTED TO XML

The Federal Government is committed to XML - ref the Federal Research
Contract with OIC members in 2001

It is part of the Australian Federal and State Government Policy with 
the Electronic Transaction Act

Each State passed similarly legislation in 2000 - 2003

B	STANDARDS AUSTRALIA AND RECONVENED IS/11 COMMITTEE

Standards Australia has said that it wants to reconvene IS/11 as the
Australian eCommerce Standards Committee and it needs Volunteers
for that Committee.

As I have pointed out in my email to Standards Australia it has to make
sure that the rules are followed and vested interests do not "Stack" the
Committee again

Not only is this issue of a single address very important for Local 
Government but it critically important for the 38 Ports around Australia 
that have endured considerable problems with their eCommerce 
Applications for the last 10 years

An example of the problems is the report submitted by Ben ANSON 
Sydney Ports Consultant to the Federal Government Expert Group on 
eCommerce Inquiry in Nov 2003

C	PORT SYSTEMS AND ECOMMERCE

The Victorian Department of Infrastructure has just published an
EOI for an eCommerce Pilot system at the Port of Melbourne

This Specification has a Supply Chain Community which is common 
to every port

"1.2 Port of Melbourne Supply Chain Community 

The following participants comprise the Port of Melbourne supply 
chain community: 

a 	Shipping Lines/Agents 
b 	Freight Forwarders 
c 	Customs Brokers 
d 	Stevedores 
e 	Port of Melbourne Community [PoMC] 
f 	Transport Companies 
g 	Exporters 
h 	Importers" 

In 1987/88 I was involved with developing a demonstration with the 
RUBAC EII methodology for the same requirement for the NSW Maritime
Service Board

As I said in my presentation on 27 Oct there needs to be a Parallax
View of eCommerce because it can never work while vested interests
keep trying to "paper 21st century techniques over 19th Century 
procedures and enforce the employment of very expensive Value Added 
Network Suppliers [VANS]" ref John RAVEN Facilitation Adviser IAPH

If there are 2 different address formats for AS 4590 the eCommerce
problems for the Ports Communities will become very expensive to
resolve for the Supply Chain Community and not assist the 
Australian Import/Export Strategy.

Part of the OTMG Tender Information Management System [TIMS]
provides a link to legislation that may be relevant to a tender/EOI

The Federal Government Hazardous Goods Act is key legislation for
this EOI

NEXT STEPS

This is why we need to resolve the AS 4590 problem of two address
formats quickly

Would you be prepared to circulate the attendees of the OASIS
XML Conferences for the last 4 years to ask who would be prepared
to participate in the IS/11 Committee ?

I would be prepared to draft an email for you to distribute
