Transaction as a general human activity is always associated with the flow and processing of information. The electronic document is the form of legally binding information which is being exchanged between the transaction parties. Both humans and information systems take part in transaction executions especially in the area of information transfer and processing. Therefore the ease of implementation of services processing electronic forms using standard programming tools is extremely important for electronic support of transactions execution. Also, the meaning of data (information) stored in the electronic form must be unambiguously and uniformly understood by processing parties (humans and systems). Moreover, services supporting electronic documents transfer and processing must be standardised to make them accessible for a large number of transactions and participants. All considered problems are related to the concept of interoperability.
