Discussion

Core Vocabularies observations

  • epo:hasOrganisationUnit should be an attribute on the OrganisationalUnit concept from org ontology.

  • If we follow org ontology we need to add a new class where to put only an attribute for the name.

  • The reason why we conflated these two is the case when only a particular unit is the Buyer.

  • Recommendation to not separate these two concepts (Organisation and Organisation Unit) and only rename the attribute to epo:hasOrganisationUnitName

    • Why? Because the Agent that takes a role (e.g. Buyer) can be a Unit or an organisation, but we decided to set the description at the “organisation level”.

  • epo:hasLegalFormType - from SEMIC perspective we asked the OP to create the Core Vocabulary for the classification of the legal forms from GLEIF:

    • This will be published in the future.

    • Switch to using a code list for legal type classifications.

  • epo:Business should be a subclass of cv:LegalEntity in Core Business Vocabulary.

  • In order to align with Core Voc, it means we need to add cv:LegalEntity and org:FormalOrganization between org:Organization and epo:Business.

  • But a Business has to be a FormalOrganization.

  • In CPOV, a PublicOrganisation is not org:FormalOrganisation, but it is directly under org:Organisation.
