The LEDES Oversight Committee has two projects that have provided draft standards for public comment:
The first is from the Ebilling Standards subcommittee, which proposes updates to Ebilling XML 2.0x, 2.1x and 2.2x. The changes are to correct an inadequate field length, add one field and align the standards. You can learn more about the proposed changes and provide feedback to the LOC here.
In addition, the IP subcommittee has proposed UTBMS codes specifically for Patent Prosecution matters. This is a really interesting take on using UTBMS, allowing for codes that pair with the USPTO. You can learn more about the proposed changes and provide feedback to the LOC here.
The public comment period closes for both projects on July 25, 2022.
