This Profile of the XML-based Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) describes an interpretation of the OASIS CAP v1.2 standard necessary to meet the needs of the Australian Government.

TC Description:
The Emergency Data Exchange Language (EDXL) is a broad initiative to create an integrated framework for a wide range of emergency data exchange standards to include the Common Alerting Protocol (EDXL-CAP), Distribution Element (EDXL-DE), Hospital AVailability Exchange (EDXL-HAVE), Resource Message (EDXL-RM), Reference Information Model (EDXL-RIM), Situation Reporting (EDXL-SitRep), and Tracking Emergency Patients (EDXL-TEP).

The public review starts 5 March 2012 and ends 20 March 2012. The specification was previously submitted for a 15-day public review on 13 December 2011 [2]. This 15-day review is limited in scope to changes made from the previous review. Changes are highlighted in the diff-marked PDF file included in the CSD package.
