Issue 315 -

epo:Organisation - epo:hasName does not have a good definition.

Checking Core Business Vocabulary for Legal Entity → legalName.

  • Add a new predicate epo:hasLegalLocation between epo:Organisation and epo:Location that can be mapped to cac:RegistrationAddress.

  • cbc:RegistrationName maps to epo:hasLegalName, attribute of epo:Organisation

  • cbc:CompanyID maps to epo:hasID, attribute of epo:Agent

Issue 316 -


The ontology must cover as many pre-award and post-award use cases. The restriction you mention above is specific to the catalogue use case and therefore need to be dealt with in a dedicated application profile. Such restrictions are not in the scope of the ontology.

Issue 319 -

In the current version of the model, we have an epo:isPersonOfCcontact relation from epo:ProcurementRole to the epo:ContactPoint. epo:ContactPoint class has the attribute epo:hasDescription which can be used to specify the name of the person.

This part of the model is under revision and we will take into consideration your point.
