3        Certification 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.

4        English-language summary

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.

5        Statement 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.
