Element <tbx:normativeAuthorization>
ISO Logo

The <tbx:normativeAuthorization> element indicates the status of the term when the entry contains more than one term for a given language, i.e., whether a term is "preferred" (recommended), "admitted" (allowed), or "deprecated" (not recommended).

Note: Whenever an entry contains more than one term, you must rank them by using this element.

Terms with preferred status should be predominantly used in the body of the standard, while terms with admitted status can be used (although less often than the preferred term) and terms with deprecated status should not occur.

There may be more than one preferred term, more than one admitted term and more than one deprecated term, in an entry. If there is only one term in the entry, this term is automatically preferred, and you need not assign any normativeAuthorization value.

If desired or necessary, you can provide an explanation of the reasons for the different normativeAuthorization values of the terms in the entry, by using a <tbx:note>.

This is an empty element. For example:
<tbx:normativeAuthorization value="preferredTerm"/>

See supported values.
