Business partners willing to do business electronically<br> with each other must reach an agreement (1) on the economic<br> level, (2) on the inter-organizational process choreography,<br> and (3) on the services implementing the choreography.<br> In order to search for a potential business partner,<br> one will first look for a partner who offers a required<br> service on the economic level and who supports a complementary<br> role in a choreography, before binding to its IT services.<br> Inasmuch, a registry for inter-organizational systems<br> should cover all three levels and maintain the dependencies<br> between them. In this paper we set up on well accepted approaches<br> on the different levels, i.e. (1) the e3value ontology,<br> (2) the UN/CEFACT modeling methodology (UMM),<br> and (3) the business process execution language (BPEL).<br> We specify a registry meta model on top of ebRIM registering<br> the artifacts on the different levels and defining their<br> inter-dependencies.
