IC Technical Specifications

Revision Recall


This IC enterprise data encoding specification defines detailed implementation guidance for using XML to encode RevRecall data.  It defines the XML elements and attributes, associated structures and relationships, mandatory and cardinality requirements, permissible values, and constraint rules for representing RevRecall data concepts using XML.

This standard supports Executive Order (EO) 13526, Classified National Security Information which "prescribes a uniform system for classifying, safeguarding, and declassifying national security information," across national security disciplines, networks, services, and data.

Compliance with this specification is measured against all aspects of the technical and documentary artifacts contained within the specification release package.

The IC Chief Information Officer maintains this specification via the Data Coordination Activity (DCA) and Common Metadata Standards Tiger Team (CMSTT).
