The OASIS Emergency Management Technical Committee has recently completed and approved as a Committee Specification, the Emergency Data Exchange Language (EDXL) Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) v1.2 Australia (AU) Profile Version 1.0. 

In addition to completing and approving the Emergency Data Exchange Language Situation Reporting v1.0 Committee Specification 02 and advancing it to a second Public Review, it is expected that this TC will also complete and approve The Emergency Data Exchange Language Distribution element v2.0 as a new Committee Specification Draft and advance it also for Public Review.
