Today, enterprises are facing serious interoperability problems concerning the exchange of electronic data. Due to the proliferation of terminology, organizations from similar business environments have trouble cooperating, and supply chains are experiencing difficulties exchanging electronically vital information, such as catalogue data. In order to solve this problem, standardization communities are working to define formalized structures for catalogue and product data. However, standards by themselves do not solve semantic interoperability issues. For instance, a group of enterprises which share catalogue information in their business activities need to have a common semantics to understand each other. Otherwise their systems might understand the data structure but not its meaning. This is today a major challenge in modern enterprise integration. This paper contributes to achieving seamless product oriented enterprise interoperability by proposing a framework based on knowledge representation elements to support the semantic enrichment of standard-based electronic catalogues
