Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the Canadian Advisory Committee (CAC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
This part of ISO/IEC 23001 provides a standardized set of technologies for encoding XML documents. It addresses a broad spectrum of applications and requirements by providing a generic method for transmitting and compressing XML documents.
This part of ISO/IEC 23001 specifies system level functionalities for the communication of XML documents. It provides a specification which will:
- enable the development of ISO/IEC 23001-1 receiving sub-systems, called ISO/IEC 23001-1 Terminal, or Terminal in short, to receive and assemble possibly partitioned and compressed XML documents
- provide rules for the preparation of XML documents for efficient transport and storage.
The decoding process within the ISO/IEC 23001-1 Terminal is normative. The rules mentioned provide guidance for the preparation and encoding of XML documents without leading to a unique encoded representation of such documents.
