XML standard

XML, eXtensible Markup Language, as per its acronym in English, is a language based on simple text to represent structured data and exchange them into autonomous digital documents that might be read by human beings and by technology systems, locally and through networks.

XML was created by World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)

  • Universal language,
  • Non-proprietary (Free use),
  • With standardization in its structure,
  • Compatible with all systems and platforms.


The use of XML is aligned with the principle of technological neutrality, since it allows optimizing communication between applications, regardless of the origin of the data, and it enables its consumption in applications of different platforms.


Nowadays, XML is used for worldwide data exchange and it is also the language of multiple standards such as Universal Business Language (UBL); Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) used for domestic electronics; word processors in formats such as ODF and OOXML; graph formats such as SVG; it is also used for communications such as XMLRPC and web services. XML is directly supported by computer programming languages, ranging from databases stored in international servers up to mobile phones.

The XML containing digital signature or advanced electronic signature of its issuer and are additionally certified by an Authorized Provider, (certified or stamped documents), combine the benefits of XML technology with the advantages of the use of digital signature certificates based on public key infrastructures, transforming simple XML into an autonomous digital document with integrity, authenticity, non-repudiation and confidentiality guarantees

We promote the harmonization of electronic invoicing in Latin America.
