Subject: European Commission launches ICT specifications search service to promote interoperability in the EU

Dear all,

As the chair of the first Asset Description Metadata Schema (ADMS) working-group [1], it is a great pleasure to inform you that the European Commission has launched a new, and innovative, online service, based on ADMS (vocabulary to describe ICT specifications in RDF or XML). This service makes it easier to find ICT specifications that have been used to develop information systems. More than 1300 specifications from 16 participating organisations (W3C, GS1, Xrepository, etc) are now accessible and searchable through the European Commission Joinup Portal:


Both ADMS and the search service were developed with the support of the ISA Programme [2], the European Commission’s programme to foster interoperability, sharing and re-use between public administrations.

ADMS was recently published by W3C’s Government Linked Data (GLD) Working Group as a First Public Working Draft [3]. We would like to thank everyone who contributed to the ADMS specification and its adoption across the EU.
