Status assigned by AGLS Maintenance Agency decisions

Conforming. Terms and Application Profiles may be assigned a status of Conforming. Terms and Application Profiles assigned a status of conforming are those for which an implementation community has a demonstrated need and which conform to AGLS.

Recommended. Terms and AGLS-maintained Vocabulary Terms that conform to AGLS and do not semantically overlap with other terms in AGLS namespaces may be assigned the status of Recommended. This should not be confused with the obligation status of the same name.

Obsolete. Terms, Elements and Element Refinements that have been superseded, deprecated or rendered obsolete. Such terms will remain in the registry for use in interpreting legacy metadata.

Registered.Vocabulary Encoding Schemes and language translations for which the AGLS Maintenance Agency provides information but not necessarily a specific recommendation or endorsement.

Endorsed. A non-AGLS assertion may be assigned the status of Endorsed where: (1) the term is managed by a registration authority other than the AGLS Maintenance Agency and the assertion is that the term is conforming to AGLS; or (2) the term is managed by a registration authority other than the AGLS Maintenance Agency and the assertion is that the term bears either a property or sub-property relationship to a AGLS term.
