Category:Rules and standards
The eCl@ss association has defined certain rules and regulations and relies on certain national and international standards. These rules can be assigned to different categories:
- Technical standards (e.g. such as the data model or identification scheme)
- Content rules (e.g. branch-specific standards or rules for the creation of certain structural elements)
- Process standards (such as the eCl@ss maintenance process)
eCl@ss relies on the following standards
|Standard||Content||Relevant in eCl@ss for|
|ISO13584 (PLIB) / IEC 61360||Underlying Data model|
|ISO 29002||Object Identification||IRDI - Idenfication scheme|
|ISO/IEC 11179-6||Object Identification||IRDI - Idenfication scheme|
|ISO 6532||Object Identification||IRDI - Idenfication scheme|
|DIN 4000, DIN 4002||Property lists||Properties|
|ISO 639||Language Code||Almost all structural elements|
|ISO 3166||Country Code||Almost all structural elements|

eCl@ss has defined general rules for the creation of structural elements.
eCl@ss has defined naming rules for all eCl@ss structural elements.
Specific Rules for Structural Elements
eCl@ss has defined specific rules that apply for the creation of the following structural elements (PreferredName, Definition etc.):
Harmonized Branch Standards
eCl@ss relies on existing branch-specific standards rather than re-inventing what has already been created by experts. Therefore, eCl@ss cooperates with various other classification authorities in order to make eCl@ss interoperable to branch solutions, as all of them have the same goal: to promote eBusiness solutions. eCl@ss has already finalized harmonization projects with the following related standards:
|Related standard||Content||Relevant for eCl@ss segment(s)||Harmonized in eCl@ss release|
|PROLIST||Electric engineering, Process engineering||27, 37||7.0, 8.0|
|proficl@ss||Workshop equipment||23||6.0, 7.0|
|ETIM||Electric engineering||19, 21, 23, 27||6.0, 7.0|
|APPLiA/PI||Household appliances ("White goods")||29||continuously|
|bau:class||German standard for the construction industry||22||6.0|
|IMT||International standard for medical devices||34||6.0, 7.0, 8.0|
|EDMA||International standard for in-vitro diagnostics||42||7.0|
|eCALS||East-Asian standard for electronics||27||7.0|
As described in the Release Process, eCl@ss relies on an international maintenance process as defined in the [ePPS project ftp://ftp.cen.eu/CEN/Sectors/List/ICT/CWAs/CWA16100ePPS.pdf] by the [CEN Workshop eCAT http://www.cen.eu/cen/Sectors/Sectors/ISSS/Workshops/Pages/eCAT.aspx].
The process is also related to the process used in the [DIN property server http://www.dinsml.net].
