that all schema are valid
The Committee certifies
that all schema and XML instances are well-formed to the best of of its
knowledge, and have been tested to establish validity.
The Common Alerting
Protocol (CAP) is a simple but general format for exchanging all-hazard
emergency alerts and public warnings over all kinds of networks. CAP allows a
consistent warning message to be disseminated simultaneously over many
different warning systems, thus increasing warning effectiveness while
simplifying the warning task. CAP also facilitates the detection of emerging
patterns in local warnings of various kinds, such as might indicate an
undetected hazard or hostile act.
of relationships to other standards
The relationships to
other standards are inclusions and references noted in the Related Work and
Normative References section of the specification, which includes previous
versions of CAP. CAP is also a component of a larger framework, the
Emergency Data Exchange Language family of standards.
These three OASIS member
companies have certified that they are using CAP 1.2:
