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

constitute an endorsement.

expressions related to conformity assessment, as well as information about ISO's adherence to the

World Trade Organization (WTO) principles in the Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) see www .iso .org/

Subcommittee SC 32, Data management and interchange.

Introduction

Data processing and electronic data interchange rely heavily on accurate, reliable, controllable and

verifiable data recorded in databases. A prerequisite for correct and proper use and interpretation

of data is that both users and owners of data have a common understanding of the meaning and

representation of the data. To facilitate this common understanding, a number of characteristics, or

attributes, of the data have to be defined. These characteristics of data are known as “metadata”, that

is, “data that describes data”. ISO/IEC 11179-3 provides a conceptual metamodel for the attributes of

data elements and associated metadata to be specified and registered as metadata items in a metadata

registry (MDR).

This document applies to the definition, specification and contents of collections of metadata, including

interchanging or referencing among such collections.
