Subject: RE: [coel] Classification of Everyday Living V1.0 from the COEL TC approved as a Committee Specification

Chet / Paul


Many thanks for this.


I have just checked the final document links and, unfortunately, the outlines for most of the tables are missing. This makes the specification difficult to read places and ambiguous in others.


Best regards

Subject: [coel] Classification of Everyday Living V1.0 from the COEL TC approved as a Committee Specification


OASIS Members and other interested parties,


OASIS is pleased to announce that Classification of Everyday Living Version 1.0 from the OASIS Classification of Everyday Living (COEL) TC [1] has been approved as an OASIS Committee Specification. 


Digital technologies are becoming integral to our daily lives. They promise huge benefits to society, but the data they create carries potential for abuse.


COEL is a hierarchical taxonomy of everyday human life events, comprised of a Knowledge Base, Data Model and Methodology. It aims to be a roadmap for collecting and handling personal data that protects the interests of both individuals and businesses.


This specification draft defines the Classification of Everyday Living (COEL) Version 1.0 specification for the complete implementation of a compliant system. Examples and non-normative material are also offered as guidance. A model in JSON is also provided.


This Committee Specification is an OASIS deliverable, completed and approved by the TC and fully ready for testing and implementation.


The prose specifications and related files are available here:
