ISO/IEC 11179-3:2003

Information technology -- Metadata registries (MDR) -- Part 3: Registry metamodel and basic attributes

The electronic version of this International Standard can be downloaded from the ISO/IEC Information Technology Task Force (ITTF) web site

The primary purpose of ISO/IEC 11179-3:2002 is to specify the structure of a metadata registry. It also specifies basic attributes which are required to describe metadata items, and which may be used in situations where a complete metadata registry is not appropriate (e.g. in the specification of other International Standards).
