XML Work Group
Version 3.x / XML Implementation Guide
The XML Work Group is continuing to focus and update the version 3.x XML Schema for PRIA eRecording services. We are collaborating with PRIA’s alliance partner, MISMO, in identifying and using industry standard data definitions and XML Schema. There have been a number of 3.x standard publications, but PRIA has not officially recommended or endorsed a particular version of these published standards. The XML Work Group is also drafting an implementation guide that defines business use cases for eRecording and provides a technical guide in how to use the XML Schema to implement those use cases with the version 3.x reference model. We encourage your participation in our work group to refine the services and data definitions needed for eRecording services in the 3.x reference model. If you are interested in seeing what PRIA is working on in regards to Version 3.x or would like to participate in our work group calls and projects, please contact Valerie Sprague.
Alliance Partner Link
An important aspect of PRIA’s work is that we create our standards in partnership with other standard setting bodies, so as to provide as much interoperability as possible. Take a moment to visit our partners and look into the important work each of them is doing

Compliance Policy Reminder
After discussing the idea of a Compliance Testing Engine during the 2006 Winter Conference, the PRIA Technology Committee and XML Work Group reached consensus on developing a Compliance Policy Statement rather than establishing a full-featured Compliance Testing program at that time. While a Compliance Testing Engine remains under consideration, the Compliance Policy Statement currently governs activities in this area.
The Compliance Policy Statement addresses both marketing claims and software solicitation documents and provides safe-harbor guidelines as well.
As always, if you are interested in participating in the ongoing work of the PRIA XML Work Group, please contact Nancy Sotomayor or Matthew Hailstone. The work group meets via conference call on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month at Noon Eastern. For additional information regarding these calls, please contact Valerie Sprague.
