Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) and IEC (the International Electrotechnical

Commission) form the specialized system for worldwide standardization. National bodies that

are members of ISO or IEC participate in the development of International Standards through

technical committees established by the respective organization to deal with particular fields of

technical activity. ISO and IEC technical committees collaborate in fields of mutual interest. Other

international organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO and IEC, also

take part in the work.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for

the different types of document should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www .iso .org/ directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject

of patent rights. ISO and IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent

rights. Details of any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the

Introduction and/or on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www .iso .org/ patents) or the IEC

list of patent declarations received (see http:// patents .iec .ch).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

Conceptual_Domain_Definition is a class, each instance of which models a conceptual domain definition

(3.2.144), a formal definition of a defined conceptual domain (3.2.145).

11.3.2.11.2 Description of Defined_Conceptual_Domain

Defined_Conceptual_Domain is a class, each instance of which models a defined conceptual domain

(3.2.145).

As a subclass of Conceptual_Domain, Defined_Conceptual_Domain inherits the associations of the former.

In addition, Defined_Conceptual_Domain shall participate in a domain_definition association with one or

more Conceptual_Domain_Definitions.

Where multiple Conceptual_Domain_Definitions are specified, the definition_expression (11.3.2.10.2.1) of

each shall be equivalent, each specified using a different definition_grammar (11.3.2.10.2.2).

11.3.2.11.3 Attributes of Defined_Conceptual_Domain
11.3.2.11.3.1 begin_date
Attribute name: begin_date

Definition: date on which this Defined_Conceptual_Domain became, or will become, a valid

Defined_Conceptual_Domain
Obligation: Mandatory
Multiplicity: 1
Datatype: Date (6.2.3)

NOTE A registration authority can determine whether this date is the date the defined

conceptual domain becomes valid in a registry, or the date the defined conceptual

domain becomes part of the source domain, or some other date.
11.3.2.11.3.2 end_date
Attribute name: end_date

Definition: date on which the Defined_Conceptual_Domain ceased, or will cease, to be valid.

Obligation: Optional
Multiplicity: 0..1
Datatype: Date (6.2.3)

NOTE 1 The absence of the end_date indicates that the Defined_Conceptual_Domain is still valid.

NOTE 2 A registration authority can determine whether this date is the date the defined

conceptual domain becomes no longer valid in a registry, or the date the defined

conceptual domain becomes no longer part of the source domain, or some other date.

11.3.2.11.3.3 locked_date
Attribute name: locked_date

Definition: date on which the set of Defined_Value_Meanings associated with the Defined_Con-

ceptual_Domain was, or will be, locked.
Obligation: Optional
Multiplicity: 0..1
Datatype: Date (6.2.3)

ISO/IEC 11179-3:2013/Amd.1:2020(E)
11.3.2.11.3.4 expanded_on
Attribute name: expanded_on

Definition: datetime at which the set of Defined_Value_Meanings associated with the Defined_Con-

ceptual_Domain was expanded and imported into the registry.
Obligation: Optional
Multiplicity: 0..1
Datatype: Datetime (6.2.4)
—— End of attributes of Defined_Conceptual_Domain ——
11.3.2.12 Defined_Value_Meaning class
11.3.2.12.1 Direct superclass
Defined_Value_Meaning is a subclass of Concept (6.4.2.2, 9.1.2.1).
11.3.2.12.2 Description of Defined_Value_Meaning

Defined_Value_Meaning is a class, each instance of which models a value meaning (3.2.142), which

provides semantic content of a possible value.

NOTE Defined_Value_Meaning is like Value_Meaning (11.3.2.8), except importing the value meanings for a

Defined_Conceptual_Domain is optional, and if done will be done as a set, so the begin_date and end_date attributes

reside on the domain instead of the individual values.

Defined_Value_Meaning shall participate in a defined_value_meaning_set association (11.3.3.8) with one

or more Defined_Conceptual_Domains (11.3.2.11).

Defined_Value_Meaning may participate in a defined_permissible_value_meaning (11.3.3.9) association

with zero or more Defined_Permissible_Values (11.3.2.14).
11.3.2.12.3 Attributes of Defined_Value_Meaning
None.
11.3.2.13 Defined_Value_Domain class
11.3.2.13.1 Direct superclass
Value_Domain (11.3.2.8)
11.3.2.13.2 Description of Defined_Value_Domain

Defined_Value_Domain is a class each instance of which models a defined value domain (3.2.145), a

value domain (3.2.140) that is specified by a reference to an external source of all its permissible values

(3.2.96). The external source is specified by the associated the Defined_Conceptual_Domain (11.3.2.11),

in conjunction with the fieldname_for_permitted_value attribute.

NOTE A Defined_Value_Domain is like an Enumerated_Value_Domain (11.3.2.6), except the enumerated

values are referenced from the external source that specifies the Defined_Conceptual_Domain (11.3.2.11), and the

permissible values could or could not be imported into the registry. If the permissible values are imported, then

they are imported as a set, so the begin_date and end_date attributes are specified on the Defined_Value_Domain

instead of on the individual Permissible_Values (11.3.2.7).
Each Defined_Value_Domain class may participate in the association:
— defined_pe
