After the first general concept about using ontologies for the exchange of subject-oriented business process models in 2014, a concrete proposal for using the Web Ontology Language (OWL) and the semantic web technology framework as a concrete and direct means was made in 2017 including a proof of concept and proposal for a first standard. Based upon this work a standardization committee has formed and further developed the concept, brought in or reduced definitions, and discussed and agreed on specific controversial topics. In this paper we describe the progress made in 2017 and the current state of the OWL-Standard for the Subject-Oriented Parallel Activity Specification Schema (PASS) modeling language. We present the current state and argue for the made conventions.
