Over deze norm
The present document gives guidance on unique identification systems currently in use or emerging for organizations and parts thereof. This covers organizational and operational rules and processes to enable interoperability across multiple organization identification schemes. Stress is laid on the persistence or permanence of the identification, i.e. that an according identifier designates the same entity over a long period. It comprehends an analysis of existing systems and proposes recommendations on how to achieve interoperability among them by using meta-identification systems. These specifications form an umbrella over disparate schemes for business directory services in order to create a reconciled and workable framework that can be used in multiple application environments. The focus is on unique identification systems used in Europe taking into account relevant international standardisation developments. The document concentrates on the usage of unique identifiers in “open” systems and user groups. The borders between open and closed groups are fluent and closed groups may be integrated in open groups at a later stage. Stress is laid on identifiers used in open exchange and which can be verified in directories accessible over the Internet. However, identification of products which are consumer goods is not in the focus of this document. In particular, this CWA focuses on the following topics: • Organization identification schemes which allow to identify the organization; Including schemes which allow to identify the organization and organization parts (e.g. organizational units, establishments, documents or services provided by the identified organization - see “organization part” in “Definitions”), thus any relevant entity which can be identified uniquely. • Verification of the identified organization contained in such a scheme and registered in a directory service. Special consideration is given to governance issues and legal considerations concerning the registers as well as how secure access is ensured to such registers. • Bringing together various schemes without obligating the scheme issuers to change their registration process. The document contains an analysis of architectural models of interoperability of directories and resolution services and gives recommendations in order to assure low administrative effort and a maximum flexibility of using organization identification schemes and of verifying identifiers. For the purpose of this Workshop, the term “Cyber-Identity” is restricted to worldwide unique identification of business entities and parts thereof by applying unique identifiers and “verification” solely to verifying the identified organizations by using a publicly available directory/register for organizations/ companies. Excluded from the scope of this CWA is identification of citizens and consumers, although it will be taken into consideration that some issues are common to identification of citizens and consumers and an interface might be needed in future. International standards covering issues addressing identification systems of organizations are taken as reference for the present document.
