The purpose of this Sub Committee is to design, develop, and release XML-based standards and specifications as CAP Profiles based on the CAP Standard.

Sub-Committee Charter

Across the nation, government agencies, non-governmental organizations and private sector emergency management offices use the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) for alert and warning the affected area and population. In some instances, it is necessary to constrain or extend CAP to better fit the needs and requirements of a particular system, agency, organization or country. Those constraints or extensions are described in documents known as a CAP Profile.

The purpose of this Sub Committee is to design, develop, and release XML-based standards and specifications as CAP Profiles based on the CAP Standard.

The work products of this sub-committee will be in alignment with the rules for establishing profiles as set forth by the RIM Sub-Committee.
