Akoma Ntoso Naming Convention V1.0 OASIS Standard published

OASIS is pleased to announce the publication of its newest OASIS Standard, approved by the members on 21 February 2019:

Akoma Ntoso Naming Convention Version 1.0
OASIS Standard
21 February 2019

The OASIS LegalDocML TC works to advance worldwide best practices for the use of XML within a Parliaments', Assembly's or Congress' document management processes, within courts' and tribunals' judgment management systems, and generally in legal documents including contracts. The work is based on the Akoma Ntoso, a project sponsored by the United Nations.

Akoma Ntoso means "linked hearts" in the Akan language of West Africa. For legal publishers and makers of legal information systems, Akoma Ntoso provides a framework for creating machine-readable parliamentary, legislative and judiciary documents such as legislation, debate records, minutes, judgments, etc. In doing so, it helps build a strong foundation for open access to government information.

This Naming Convention provides the rules for defining IRIs and ids used in the Akoma Ntoso XML standard.
