ISO/IEC 9075 defines the SQL language. The scope of the SQL language is the definition of data structure and the operations on data stored in that structure. Parts 1, 2 and 11 encompass the minimum requirements of the language. Others parts define extensions.
ISO/IEC 9075-4:2003 specifies the syntax and semantics of statements to add a procedural capability to the SQL language in functions and procedures. It includes statements to direct the flow of control, define variables, make assignments and handle exception conditions.
