Raleigh, N.C. -- The HR-XML Consortium announced that it has signed an agreement with its first international chapter, the HR-XML Consortium Japan. The agreement establishes the HR-XML

Consortium Japan -- a separate, non-profit organization organized under Japanese law -- as the group officially responsible for localizing and developing HR-XML standards to meet the needs of the Japanese market.

Priorities for HR-XML Consortium Japan are developing appropriate extensions for HR-XML's Staffing Industry Data Exchange Standards (SIDES), a comprehensive set of specifications for staffing procurement, and HR-XML's Staffing Exchange Protocol (SEP), a set of specifications for handling job postings and the exchange of candidate information. Other areas of interest include working with HR-XML on the development of standards for competency data exchange and interoperability.

"Recent regulatory reforms are bringing about dramatic changes within the Japanese labor market," says Tadanori Takekawa, Executive Director, HR-XML Consortium Japan. "Accompanying this wave of change is increasing interest in data exchange standards for recruiting and staffing," says Takekawa.

"We are extremely pleased to have a partner to champion the development and promotion of HR data standards within Japan," says Chuck Allen, Executive Director, HR-XML Consortium. "We thank our Japanese colleagues for their hard work over the past year in establishing HR-XML Consortium Japan."
