Type of Standards


“This International Standard defines a reference model and a conceptual framework for location-based services (LBS), and describes the basic principles by which LBS applications may interoperate. This framework references or contains an ontology, a taxonomy, a set of design patterns and a core set of LBS service abstract specifications in UML. This International Standard further specifies the framework’s relationship to other frameworks, applications and services for geographic information and to client applications. This International Standard addresses, for an LBS system, the first three basic viewpoints as defined in the Reference Model for Open Distributed Processing (RM-ODP, see ISO/IEC 10746-1). These viewpoints are the a) Enterprise Viewpoint – detailing the purpose, scope, and policies of the system, b) Information Viewpoint – detailing the semantics of information and processing within the system, c) Computational Viewpoint – detailing the functional decomposition of the system. The fourth and fifth viewpoints are addressed only in requirements or examples. These are the d) Engineering Viewpoint – detailing the infrastructure for distribution, e) Technology Viewpoint – detailing the technology for implementation. Reference models and frameworks can be defined at a variety of levels, from conceptual design to software documentation. This International Standard ⎯ defines the conceptual framework for, and the type of applications included within, LBS, ⎯ establishes general principles for LBS for both mobile and fixed clients, ⎯ specifies the interface for data access while roaming, ⎯ defines the architectural relationship with other ISO geographic information standards, ⎯ identifies areas in which further standards for LBS are required. This International Standard does not address the following issues: ⎯ rules by which LBS are developed;
⎯ general principles for roaming agreements for mobile clients and tracking targets”

The Botswana Bureau of Standards (BOBS) understands the importance of impartiality and confidentiality in carrying out its management system certification activities. BOBS management is committed to gaining and maintaining the reputation, credibility and ultimately, confidence of its stakeholders in rendering its certification services. Additionally, BOBS strives to continuously manage foreseen potential conflicts of duty and interest and ensures objectivity of its activities under the management system certification. To achieve the above, BOBS shall identify, analyse, record and manage potential conflict of duty and interest to ensure that certification services are not provided within relationships that have been identified to pose an unacceptable threat to impartiality. An Impartiality Committee shall periodically review activities of the certification function to verify commitment to credibility and fairness. The Committee shall further assist in the development of policies relating to impartiality of providing certification activities. BOBS is committed to maintaining in strict confidence all information accessed while rendering the certification services and shall ensure that such information is not divulged to third parties without the Client’s written consent unless if required by law.

When things don't work as they should, it often means that standards are absent.
