Information and Communication Technology - Guideline 78. Semantic interoperability
The institution, in coordination with the other participants in the agreement, defines semantic interoperability resources at the international level in order to improve the automatization of data exchange operations among institutions involved in the agreement.
Using semantic interoperability in the implementation of international agreements would provide unambiguous definitions of the concepts used by the institutions involved. These mechanisms would be mainly based on metadata systems and vocabularies related to the exchanged data types.
