Participants: Cecile Guasch, Veit Jahns, Giorgia Lodi, Natalie Muric
Model editor: Eugeniu Costetchi
Note editor: Andreea Pasăre

The work done during these eCatalogue meetings is done in the feature/model-refactoring branch.

Discuss GH 319

Presenting PEPPOL BIS model for Contact:


Add an epo:hasContactName attribute on epo:ContactPoint with the following definition:
“A short text by which a contact is known or referred to.

WG Approval 27/01/2022

Not in Agent, but in Contact Point to avoid:

  • Complexity on the implementation side

  • Complexity that may arise in handling the personal data and compliance to GDPR

Discuss GH 317

Item is context free, and line is contextualized.
epo-cat:CatalogueItem should not be equivalent to epo:Item.

We need to provide the possibility to:

  • Have Lot able to refer to item specification.request

  • Be able to point to a particular item from a particular retailer

We have a catalogue that refers to items.

We should create a new class called epo:ItemRequest linked to the epo:Lot; but this shall be postponed to a later development stage of the EPO.

ItemRequest is a PreAwardCatalogue (part of the Competition or eAccess phase).

Old version:


New version: deleting epo:Item and moving relations to epo:TenderLot


Added a new controlled vocabulary: epo:vat-category


Renamed eCatalogueItem to Item.

Checking attributes on epo-ecat:Item class.

Model manufacturer is a role that is played by an agent and an item has a manufacturer.

Continue working on this next meeting.
