Information technology -- Procedure for the registration of algorithms for the lossless compression of data
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2005. Therefore this version remains current.
Specifies the procedure to be followed by a registration authority in preparing, maintaining und publishing an international register of numeric identifiers allocated to the algorithms, excluding cryptographic ones. Describes in detail: registration authority; sponsoring authorities; registration, withdrawal, correction and revision procedure; early reservation of an identifier. An identifier registered in accordance with this standard serves as an identification of the algorithm associated with it in the register. Apart from such identification, registration does not affect the status of the algorithm concerned.
