The <pub-date> element records the date on which (the first published version of) an international standard was first published; the <release-date> element records the date on which a particular version of an international standard is published. Later corrections, amendments, editions, and alternate language versions for a standard will all carry the same <pub-date> as the original publication; the different dates on which they are published will be reflected in different values for their <release-date> elements.
